22 Reasons to Use the Sitz Bath Setting
BidetMate is increasing our health through the cleanliness of the sitz bath function and is recommended by doctors. All BidetMates have a sitz bath function because it is a crucial function that we did not overlook. Sitz baths are advised for a range of reasons, from general cleaning to the more serious.
Bidets and hemorrhoids are commonly joined together. A sitz bath from a bidet toilet seat after or before bowel movements cleanses the perineum (area between the anus and genitals) of both males and females with a warm water spray. This is far more soothing and cleaner than dry toilet paper. Besides general cleaning, you can contribute to a speedy recovery from any damage by increasing blood flow with the warm water of a sitz bath. Any itch down there is particularly uncomfortable, and a sitz bath can give some relief. The extra care of a sitz bath could be needed for any of the following reasons:
- Pruritus ani
- Sexually transmitted infection
- falling and causing damage, usually on a bicycle crossbar, fence, gym equipment, or bathtub’s edge
- Hormone-related tissue thinning
- Yeast infections
- Post-episiotomy or the pain from a tear
- Surgery to remove the prostate
- Surgery to repair the urethral stricture
- Fournier’s gangrene
A sitz bath is also great for vaginal trauma and itching for many of the same reasons. In addition, a sitz bath can give relief for the following reasons:
- symptoms of menopause,
- skin disorders,
- vulvar cancer
Sometimes the discomfort is caused by common household items.
- laundry detergent
- feminine hygiene products
- perfumes and dyes present in toilet paper
Use the process of elimination to figure out what substance is irritating your skin and the sitz bath function of the BidetMate to provide instant soothing.
Children are a population prone to constipation. The BidetMate has a setting to assist with this issue, but it can lead to tears if constipation is not resolved in time. Sit your little one on the toilet seat and read them a book while the sitz bath rinses over the wounds and helps them heal faster. You may not see the tear or anal fissure; instead, your child may tell you that with pooping is painful, traces of blood on stools, or toilet paper. Or they may feel burning or itching in the anal area. Burning and itching could be caused by not cleaning well, which is another prevention the BidetMate brings you.
There are uncomfortable times when we can’t shower as we typically would. Usually, recovering from surgery or injury is the reason for not being able to shower. A sitz bath or any of the cleansing functions on a BidetMate really comes in handy if you find yourself in this situation.
The sitz bath function on a BidetMate can also ease period cramping. This ache all too well known to some does not need to be endured.
Possibly the most common reason, and our twenty-second reason today, is hemorrhoids. These are swollen blood vessels, and they will itch and hurt. They are common; in fact, 75% will have them at one time or another. Sitz baths, regular baths, ice packs, and over-the-counter creams will all help.
Be prepared for any of these situations with the modern BidetMate and consider getting help with installation if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself. It is good for the earth, good for your loved ones, and good for you.
