Vaginal discharge: Unusual vaginal discharge may signal infection, and should be evaluated by a health care professional. Toothpaste coming in contact with the vagina may cause irritation and pain.

TOOTH paste: For the TEETH, not your privates. See your physician regarding your discharge. Toothpaste used outside of the mouth has been known to cause abrasive and chemical burns... just search this site for people who have done that and are asking for relief.

Not recommended: If any concerns with vaginal discharge, see your doctor for evaluation, tests and possible treatment.

Toothpaste: Toothpaste is formulated to be used in the mouth, and only in the mouth. Used anywhere else it can produce tissue irritation, a chemical burn. Vaginal discharge can indicate a urinary tract and or genital infection. It's a red flag, please see an OBGyn now.

Yes: Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal. Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.
