Too irritating: Avoid peroxde products in such a sensitive area! If it is a blocked gland, try gentle massaging pressure while in a warm bath to get the gland to express. If that doesnt work, see your gyn to discuss drainage if necessary.

Clitoris: Applying benzoyl peroxide to your clitoris is likely to be a rather unpleasant experience. It is a very drying agent and this is one if the last places you want to be dry I would think. It would be in your best interest to see a Gynecologist to evaluate this and prescribe a better if not a less noxious treatment.

A 25-year-old member asked:

Can you have vaginal surgery to make a large clitoris more smaller?

Dr. Michael Traub

Yes: Yes that procedure can be done. But it is not a common procedure and most doctors do not have good experience with that. So you would want to find either an obgyn or a fertility specialist who actually has experience in that surgery called a "clitoroplasty." your best best would be to contact a major academic medical center nearby.

Apply thin layer. .: to all areas of the skin that have acne after gently cleansing the skin and drying. It works both to reduce redness and swelling of active lesions, but also helps to open the pores and prevent further pimples. As it may be drying, start with once daily for a few weeks, and then increase to twice or three times daily if well tolerated. It can be used on both face and back but avoid your eyes.
