I started using summers eve wash and now have burning, itching, redness and dryness. I had sex 2.5yrs ago and it was protected. Is it the soap or std?
Hmmm....: It's not super bad, but usually is not needed. The outside is the vulva and can be be gently washed during baths and showers. The inside is the vagina. Vaginas are not meant to be washed. That means washing vaginas is not natural, and can mess up the inside, balanced conditions of a vagina. It's nice to have good hygiene, but know that vaginas are "self-cleaning". ...Read more
I've switched to ivory soap for my body but I use summer eve vaginal wash. Can I use soap and summer eve together to fully clean my vaginal area?
Do not douche!: Despite all the ads and what you might have heard from friends or family, vaginal douching ("vaginal wash") is unhealthy. It often destroys normal vaginal bacteria, increasing the risk of infections, sometimes serious. And douching is unnecessary for vaginal hygiene. Just wash your genital area (outside) with soap and water when you shower or bathe. Leave the inside alone! ...Read more
I am not sure what you mean by "PH hormones". When I looked that up on the web the only answers I got was Parathyroid Hormones. Is that what you have and if so, what is being done about it?
Whatever PH is, I see no reason to worry about body wash, and please let me know what you mean by "ph" ...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

Wife is complaning of smell coming from vagina. She says docter told her to use is Summer's Eve Cleansing Wash for Sensitive Skin Simply Sensitive is this safe for her.?
2nd opinion needed: Your wife needs to see a GYN MD for a 2nd opinion as we almost never advocate the use of a commercial douching product for an abnormal odor from the vagina. An assessment for a vaginal infection will be done first and foremost as douching can actually cause more harm to the vaginal pH sometimes worsening the presumptive bacterial infection. ...Read more
I have mild acne&i started 2 use vitamin E oil at night and wash with facial cleanser@next morning. Is it bad to use vitamin E coz it can clog pores?
Acne should respond better to a gel or lotion that contains benzoyl peroxide. You can also try washing your face with salicylic acid face wash. You should be able to find these products in a n acne section of your pharmacy. You can use an oil free moisturizer.
If it doesn't help you should see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Safe: Vitamin E is generally considered safe for most healthy people. Evion, a brand of vitamin E, should be no different. In high doses, more than 400 IU/day, it might promote bleeding and even stroke. Nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, and weakness have also been reported with high doses. Most would not recommend this supplement for a young healthy woman: focus on healthy food sources such as fruits/veggies. ...Read more
Vitamin E & sex: Evion is a vitamin e supplement. There is some evidence that it may increase libido (sex drive) and male fertility (being able to get a woman pregnant), but not a lot of studies yet to compare if it's really helpful for people whose vit e levels are already normal, or only has benefits if someone was low on vit e before starting. Vit e can build up to toxic levels, so don't take more than 1000mg/d. ...Read more
