Thanks for asking!: You can, the products to avoid are the ones that contain a steroid since these over time have a tendency to think the skin and this skin is already thin to begin with. Check with your local doctor for more information and help to diagnosis why you are having problems to begin with.

A 42-year-old member asked:

Is triple antibiotic ointment safe to put on vagina if there are tears?

Not best solution.: This area of the body is very vascular allowing it to heal well. If you have a yeast infection – then use of an antifungal medication for tears would be appropriate. If you were to use an antibiotic ointment it may lead you to becoming sensitive to the medication. It might also irritate the delicate tissues.
