The fad of wearing skinny jeans is among the hottest ones now days. No doubt, skinny jeans look stylish and give the wearer a chic statement; physicians suggest the use of skinny jeans harmful for health. So, it is better to learn the potential risks associated with sporting the tight jeans before getting dressed into it.
Skinny jeans similar to snug-fitting pants can bring about nerve damage. The problem, called meralgia paresthetica is set off by pressure on femoral-cutaneous nerve in the pelvis that results in a painful, blazing, tickly thigh.
Dr. John England of the American Academy of Neurology said:
“The nerve, in some people, is susceptible to compression. It is a pure sensory nerve – it doesn’t go to muscles or provide strength. Anything that is tight around there could potentially compress the nerve that goes there.”
The condition, however, isn’t new and has appeared for the most part in construction workers, expectant women and overweight people; even young, healthy ladies suffer the condition occasionally.
However, you don’t have to get rid of the skinny jeans. You can wear them for a short span of time as the damage it causes to you is temporary and as soon as you remove the tight clothes the damage is eliminated.
Besides nerve infection, tight outfits have been suggested to cause vaginal yeast infections, bladder infections, development of blood clots in the legs and contact dermatitis. Moreover, tight clothing can also retard motility in the bowels that cause abdominal pain after you have a meal. In males, it has been concerned as a cause of genital heat-stress and potential fertility problems.
