Should women wash their vaguna with soap?

Not the inside: You should wash the vulva (the outside) with a gentle soap and warm water. But you should not wash inside or douche.

Shower soap is fine: A woman can just use the same mild shower soap that she washes everywhere else with, and just gently rub the places between the big labia and her thighs, and between the big labia and her small inner labia, and around the clitoris.

No need to change...: There is no need to change soaps when showering.

Hello. last week i used soap to wash my vagina, which caused it to burn and this past week it has been on and itchy. I used cream and now it's swollen?

Swelling: Itching and swelling of the vagina can be seen with a yeast infection or, in your case could be a reaction to the cream you applied. If you're having associated vaginal discharge a vaginal infection is likely. If no discharge, discontinue any creams and apply warm water compresses. Avoid tight underwear or jeans. See your physician if symptoms don't improve or if there is a discharge. ...Read more
