Can i use dettol to wash my vagina....as m feeling vaginal irritation?

Don't to it!: Antiseptics and soaps should never be used in the vagina. Never douche with anything: douching always is unhealthy, unnecessary for hygiene (the vagina is self-cleaning), and will not cure any infection or irritation.

Vaginal yeast, if present, can be treated with antifungals such as monistat, Gyne-Lotrimin or miconazole. Dettol will kill good bacteria. ...Read more

Make sure that the water temperature is not higher than your body temperature as otherwise you may get contractions. Drink lots of water prior to your bath. Some women get dizzy when they take baths during pregnancy. Good Luck! ...Read more
