What type of soap substitutes should I use for my vagina? Is it ok to also use vagisil cream?

Mild soap: You do not need to put soap inside your vagina. Use a mild soap like ivory or dove to bathe. Vagisil is unnecessary; if you have itching or irritation, see your gyn to be evaluated for an infection.

Should not: We do not have enough information about vagisil in pregnancy to tell you that it is safe to use. I would avoid using it while pregnant. If symptoms persist see your obstetrician.

Are you sure that: You have a yeast infection? If not, having the diagnosis confirmed by your physician makes sense. Different types of vaginal problems require different medical interventions. Yeast can present with clumpy, white vaginal discharge to a watery, white discharge. Sometimes a discharge is not apparent. There is no odor. It can cause swelling and redness of vulva along with itching and burning pain.

Yeast? STD? See MD: There are many possible causes of new or abnormal vaginal discharge. With itching, a yeast infection (thrush) is possible, so so are STDs and other problems. Any new, anbormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge needs professional evaluation and testing. See your doctor soon. Good luck!
