When suffering water infections should you you use dettol?

Infections: Have no idea what you mean by "water infections". There are numerous diseases that can be transmitted to humans thru contaminated water.

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

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. In fact, it often causes infections or makes them worse. See a doctor to learn the cause of irritation (maybe a yeast infection?). But do not douche with Dettol or anything else. ...Read more

Bad idea: Dettol is a good antiseptic for toilets, sinks ; counters not for vaginas.

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

Anal warts: There are many possible causes of the symptoms you note, which include warts, but also other things.
