I have really bad razor burn on my vagina near my vagina hole and i also have a cut, can I use tea tree cream to ease the pain .?

I have really bad razor burn on my vagina near my vagina hole and i also have a cut, can I use tea tree cream to ease the pain .?

Yeah?: I'm sure it won't hurt but i would consider getting an over the counter silver based antibiotic and combining it with the topical anesthetic.

Solarcaine can help but keep clean with soap and water 2x per day. ...Read more
