Vagina Problem :( adult content

So, I'm an idiot. My husband and I were using a certain cream that is used for men only during oral and a bit of it kind of ended up in/near the opening of my vagina. I think that is what has caused the burning and itching I am experiencing now. There is no discharge. In fact it feels extremely dry like I want to lotion it or use a lube or something. I'm miserable. And to make matters worse I shaved recently and now the hairs that are growing back are rubbing against the area and making matters much worse. It's been a few days and the irritation has cause my vagina to get all red and irritated looking :(, and it is starting to smell a little bad. I also have not been drinking enough water. I am positive it's not a STD unless I got it from a toilet. I'm pretty sure it's irritation and/or possibly an infection now....It's similar to what used to happen when I used to douche. Any ideas for what is can be of what to do?

  • What creme were you using? You can always rub a little warmed olive oil on it for moisture. I would go to the doc just to make sure you don't have a serious side effect.

  • You could always try a little hydrocortizone cream for a few days, and if that doesn't help, try using some lanolin to moisturize. I wouldn't use any oils because it doesn't allow the skin beneath to "breathe."

  • Go to the doctor or call them asap. You may have an infection or you could even be allergic to something in the creame you used. It needs to be examined.

    Good luck!

  • have you looked up symptoms of vulvanitis? check into that and it could be a uti and yeast infection at the same time and magnified by the hairs poking you there
