Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear thanks for writing to us.

It is common when women use pads for long time during periods.

Generally there is nothing to worry and just avoid itching and just clean the area regularly and wear a cotton based underwear.

In case it persists for more than 2 days from now then visit a Gynaecologist for a clinical examination.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
