Is anal douching with diluted Dettols before anal sex a good idea to keep my inside clean and disinfected? Could it be harmful? Is there any risk?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not advisable

Even when diluted, Dettol can cause serious toxicity when taken internally.
It contains phenols and is used to kill agricultural pests in Australia. Should be used to clean surfaces and not used internally. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
