Irritatation?: Stop any new soaps, detergents, creams, fragrances, fabric softeners, lotions or new brand of (or generic) pads or pantyliners. If the symptoms don't get better in a few days, get checked by a doc for other problems. Fragrances and harsh soaps are irritants. So even if you used some forms before, now that you are having problems, use only unscented products till better.
