The holiday is being declared by the American Greetings card company and if youre planning to let it all hang out on Go Commando Day, be careful because a dermatologist in New York says there are good reasons to keep it hanging in.
Dr. Francesca Fusco is advising people to stop and think before they grin and bare it because going without underwear can upset the delicate natural balance provided by comfortable fitting cotton underwear.
For instance, she says going commando while wearing tight clothing depletes the body of the good type of yeasty bacteria, called lactobacillus.
In addition, free ballin or free buffing for females may lead to moisture accumulation and an increase in harmful bacteria that would have normally been absorbed by underpants.
Finally, Dr. Fusco says theres the chance of men getting maimed by their zippers the unkindest cut of all.
