Sometimes i suggest a pure soap such as dove, but it may be too drying for already dry skin. You should try different brands and formulas to see what works for you. ...Read more

Is summer eve's vag wash safe? NOt the douche, just Use for external washing, gel like texture, like body wash.

But it's unnecessary: The external only product is probably safe. But it's also not necessary. A warm wash w/ the same item you use all over yourself is enough. If you really have an odor that is bad - it's a reason for an OBGYN exam - not a cover-up. If there's an infection - you need to cure it, not hide it. But yes, use is okay if you're healthy otherwise. ...Read more
