Your response to Aveeno suggests that dry skin is likely the cause and would recommend that you apply the lotion <3 minutes after bathing (avoid scented soap as well) to see if this helps. ...Read more

Does anyone know if any serious side effects will occur as a result of the aveeno mosturuzing lotion being placed intravaginally?
It depends on the circumstances. If you did it once, it should not have any effect. If you did it and had sex with a condom, the condom would have become ineffective. If you need a lubricant, use a water based jelly like K-Y jelly.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
