Getty Images Ricky John Molloy ] Once again, Reddit asks the important questions: Just days after a confused woman revived the conversation, whether it was n or not for men peeing while seated, another Reddit Relationship item has sparked debates over men's underwear habits.
"I just learned that my friend goes days without changing his underwear, and me "This is a normal dude thing?"
Many men answered that they change their underwear every time they take a shower, which is usually done every day (except camping trips or occasional hangover day). the case is, with a man commenting, "If I do not swap my boxer shorts, it's usually a depression."
A daily showering and changing shines for those men Normally, but at least one in five men does not do that. In May 2015, the University of Maryland sociology study found that 28 percent of men felt that wearing the same undergarment two consecutive days was fine. And who of us did not have a lazy Sunday, in which we wore our pajamas or whatever the day before?
But as one Reddit commentator put it, there is one all-important caveat: "Going a few days without a shower is fine . Showering and re-dressing of dirty underwear is deviant .
In addition, it is also harmful to health. Each underwear contains traces of bacteria and fecal matter that can cause a pretty bad smell. Not to mention the accumulation of sweat and dead skin cells, which can irritate the skin in combination with chafing and overgrowth of the yeast, causing itching, unpleasant rashes and even fungal infections such as staph infection or tinea cruris, commonly known, Jock says Itching. This is double if you are the sweaty, active type.
And when you sleep in your little animals, you are even more susceptible to itchy skin conditions. Professor Sally Bloomfield of the London School of Hygiene responded to a study on the health risks of unwashed sleepwear and said, "You've been shedding skin cells all the time. They are full of microorganisms. We all have skin and intestinal organisms that are normally not harmful to our skin and gut. But if they get in the wrong place, they can cause problems. "
In short, fresh boxers are best. Do not rely on the snuff test to help you: Bacteria can also be present without odor, and you do not want to transfer E.coli from the back of your head to your face, says Kelly Reynolds, Ph. D., director of the center for Environment, Exposure, Science and Risk at the University of Arizona. But if it's an underwear emergency, you can probably wear the same pair for up to three days, advises Philip Tierno, professor of microbiology and pathology at the NYU School of Medicine. It is not necessary to take a breath first.
