Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard.

You can, but...: ...Whether it works will depend on the cause. If it's due to a yeast infection, for example, the effect will be temporary at best. Still, it won't hurt to try, and if it doesn't work, see your doctor and find out the cause. And by the way, "maximum strength" is a marketing slogan; 1% hc cream is actually not very strong at all - it's just the maximum you can buy without a prescription. ...Read more

Experiencing vaginal itching. Along with clear/ white discharge like on&off Mild case no smell no pain Can I use feminine anti-itch cream for itch?
I started itching and have hives, took a allegra at 3:30 am, applied Benadryl (diphenhydramine) ant-itch cream this morning. Noticed hives now can I take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablet?
