Cosmetics that contain propylene glycol can trigger an infection or inflammation around the vagina. The vaginal canal and vulva are very sensitive, giving room for allergic reactions. In case of redness, swelling or itchiness, use a cool wet cloth to dab, have soap less showers and apply olive oil or petroleum jelly for a quick fix.
Your vagina is exposed to several chemical compounds these days. Although these chemicals trigger different reactions among users, they can cause anything from rashes to swelling. A good example would be yeast infection medications, most of which has triggered inflammation and itching that is long lasting. Recent medical cases include inflammation caused by regular use of harsh chemicals from creams, soaps, lubes and vaginal dyes. These side effects occur as the vaginal canal and vulva are rich in blood vessels and mucus membranes, both of which make chemical absorption faster around the region as compared to the skin.
The fact that many women indulge in waxing and shaving only increases the risk as it removes a natural protective layer of the skin. This increases the vulnerability and eventually opens doors to infections and other rare allergies. Doctors have zeroed in on propylene glycol, a chemical found in many gels which have shown to trigger burning or irritation sensations in some users.
If you indulge in vaginal grooming often, make sure you see your doctor any redness, itchiness or swelling is observed. Using a cool wet cloth to dab the region, having soap less showers and applying olive oil or petroleum jelly can work as quick relief. If the sensitivity seems to reoccur change your habits and use unscented products, avoid products that use propylene glycol and pick out products that don’t cause any difficulty or irritation.

Amrita.. From penises and tongues....the mouth retain more bacteria that u can think...unless u have one partner and know his hygiene..
hahhahahaha, this is so hilarious, but sometimes the body flora can become bacterially imbalanced and cause vaginosis, candida albican and may need medical attention or treatment.
^ Me too. My husband says that coconut oil is the windex of my life (from My Big Fat Greek Wedding).
Yes I have been on different medication and it caused problems so as I use organic coconut oil for cooking and many other things tried it for my problem and it was great it worked that was last week so can recommend using it
I don't know why you're singling me out. I was just agreeing with what Sage Salonga said. The vagina is self cleaning. In my opinion I don't believe it needs external detox:) Ayurveda
Internal cleaning happens, external detox might still be required and for such reasons this could be helpful! :) Tamiko Radke
Lol at "died panties".... Might be a reason they died, no shaving, no oral.... Get thee to a nunnery with your spoilt fruit. Wow, some people really need basic self-care lessons and to step away from the "vinger" sprays cuz yeah.... It's already moldy. Just throw it out lol
You definitely don't want to add to everything by putting on petroleum jelly! It's a petro chemical! Coconut oil please!!!
The vagina is a self-"cleaning" organ (not that it's dirty anyways) and does not need detoxing. Ladies, leave your whisker biscuits alone!!
Well you shouldnt be using chemicals on your vagina. Shouldnt be shsving your hair bald. Hair is there to protect from germs and bacteria. You shouldnt wear died panties. Oral sex can give you uti, yeast infections. Keeping your vagina smothered can change its ph balance. Vagina is like fruit. Once you offset its ph balance it rottens. Ijs. So stay away from products that arent natural. Like coochie sprays deoderizers etc. Brags apple cider vinger keep the bacteria away. Helps w your oh balance. And rids yeast.
