An ideal breeding ground for bacteria
According to Dr Alyssa Dweck, if your downstairs area is constantly covered, especially by a material that isn’t very absorbent, in the long run, humidity can create an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. This bacteria can then start to irritate you and cause severe skin infections.
Pyjamas to the rescue
Although this problem mainly affects women, men are far from exempt. According to Dr Dweck, going to bed in briefs or boxers could make the quality of your sperm deteriorate after a while.
However, if you really don’t like sleeping naked, there is an alternative. Dr Dweck suggests sleeping without underwear on but in pyjamas made from a material with a high concentration of cotton. This way, you can sleep comfortable and stay healthy at the same time.
