Why wearing underwear in bed is a nightmare for your health: Tight pants lead to irritation and infection
Why wearing underwear in bed is a nightmare for your health: Tight pants lead to irritation and infection (and it's worse for men than women)
- It is better to let nether regions 'breathe' to stop bacteria gathering
- Sleeping in pants is more dangerous for men and can affect fertility
- Problem is particularly acute for women suffering hot flushes at night
- Cooling down the body can also help to lower blood pressure
Many of us sleep in pyjamas in winter and in underwear during the hot summer nights.
But it turns out the latter could be doing more harm than good, according to experts.
They say it is much better to go fully commando at night to let your nether regions ‘breathe’ and to avoid infection.

Bacteria can collect in that part of the body, especially if it becomes too sweaty.
And the problem is believed to be worse for men than women as it could also affect male fertility.
Dr Alyssa Dweck, who works in the field of gynaecology for several hospitals and health centres in New York state, has recently written on the subject.
She said: ‘I often tell my patients to sleep without underwear.
‘If [the area] is constantly covered - especially by a fabric that’s not moisture-wicking or absorbent - moisture collects, creating the perfect breeding ground for bacteria or yeast.’
This could lead to severe chafing, irritation and skin infections. The problem can become particularly acute for women suffering hot flushes at night during the menopause.
Dr Dweck said that those who cannot forgo wearing some undies at night should opt for a loose-fitting cotton pair.
She added: ‘If there’s ever a time to break out the granny panties, this would be it,’
In spite of this, one survey in Brazil - a famously uninhibited society - found that only 18 per cent of women go without underwear in bed.

The figure is likely to be even lower in countries like Britain.
The same rationale applies for men as for women, but there is also another factor at play for those trying to conceive.
Dr Brian Steixner, Director of the Institute for Men’s Health at Jersey Urology Group in the US, warned that men who sleep in boxers or briefs can compromise the quality of their sperm as their genitals become too warm during the night.
He said: ‘Your nether regions need to be just the right temperature in order to optimise sperm production.’
He added: ‘More bacteria makes for a higher likelihood that any chafed or irritated skin down there becomes infected.’
Fertility aside, there are added benefits to sleeping in the nude too as cooling down the body can help lower blood pressure.
