A 22-year-old female asked:

Used Vagisil for the first time for itchiness and it really burned my vulva for approximately 30 seconds. Is that normal? Should I use it again?

Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Feel the burn?: If you have felt the burn of the Vagisil, then it is time to find out why the "itchiness" is present by seeing a GYN MD who can diagnose a vaginal infection if needed. The vulva is too sensitive of a location to try a product that has caused previous burning for a second time.
