Sounds: Like topical allergic reaction to laundry or bath soap. It could be anything else, too, that comes in contact. If you have any systemic symptoms such as fever, fatigue, joint pains, etc, the rash could be a manifestation of a problem with your internal organs, so go see a doctor if rash persists or if you have any other symptom.

Contact dermatitis: This sounds like contact dermatitis which can develop after using something without problems in the past. It is best to avoid all dyes, deodorants, and perfumes in the vaginal area. Things like Aveeno (oatmeal) and Dove for sensitive skin are best. Hope this helps.

When I wake up every morning I have gunk in my eye lashes. Should I use irish spring on it?

When I wake up every morning I have gunk in my eye lashes. Should I use irish spring on it?

Consider infection: If this is a sudden problem, you may have infectious pink eye, and if it is mild you can wait a week or two to see if it goes away. If you have had the problem for a long time you may have chronic pink eye, which should be treated. With regard to cleaning it, a warm soak is often helpful to remove the deposits. A few drops of baby shampoo on a corner of a warm wash cloth works well.

Best antiacne soap in market?

Soap not the answer: Acne is a major chronic disease that in spite of what anybody may have told you is not the result of your diet or your poor hygiene. Topical benzoyl peroxide is the only thing you can buy yourself that can do much. Failing this, get with your physician. The oral contraceptive pill, a topical agent like clindamycin, or something stronger will be able to clear you -- depends on what's right for you.

Does diluting castile soap change the ph?

No.: PH will remain the same. Most of these soaps are designed to be pretty neutral with an excess of oil to lye ratio in the production. Castille soap has to sit for a long time to cure so there is very little unreacted lye. However lye is very basic and leaves the soap with a pH about 8. That's pretty normal for soaps.
