I can't use 'always' sanitary towels they make me itch; I don't know if it's the cover or if they have gel or what

Are there any less treated ones I could try?

The old fashioned thicker ones tend to be much better for this, and its not that uncommon.

Some kinds of towels make me itch too.

I use Asdas own brand with wings and they seem to be ok.

Use the Natural ones from waitrose or health food shops. Those plastic ones are awful.

its because they are super absorbant and a girl needs to be moist down below. they suck up everything and then you dry out and itch.

am sure its a common problem. i certainly hop around a little every month !

I never got on with 'always', too plastic, horrible... I tended to use bodyform, kotex or supermarket own brand, ones that feel like soft cottony. Not had a period for over two yrs though so its a distant memory at the moment!

Actually I have this too. I use aldi own brand. Wax also told it was because if absorbency causing drying.
