You should not: Use dish soap for baths, only mild soaps with moisturizers like Dove or Aveeno. This is especially true for the mucosal surfaces of your body, since they can get "allergic" or inflamed from drying agents like dish soap. If you are concerned about infections in the nether regions, keep an extra healthy lifestyle and only use mild cleansers in order not to change your vaginal pH too much. ...Read more

Don't have to: You don't necessarily have to wait. If you have a yeast infection there is no reason to have to wait.

Hope this helps. ...Read more
