See a dermatologist: A long soak in a bath or shower can be followed immediately by application of a ceramide cream or ointment. Forget about coconut or any other fruit. She needs professional care and a prescription cortisone. Eczema is not an allergy and not due to "stress". When you go, bring ALL products used during the last 6 months. Discuss ALL meds, herbs, etc. ...Read more

Can female masturbate with johnson's baby oil?

Can female masturbate with johnson's baby oil?

Masturbate lubricate: Masturbation lubrication is best achieved with a water-based lubricant, not oil-based as a baby oil is. This is especially true for females who have much more open/exposed mucous membranes than men do. The oil on skin is not so bad, but on the mucous membranes can be irritating and make one prone to infections, including uti's. Would suggest sticking to water-based lubricants like KY jelly. ...Read more
