I got bad itching and burning due to vagisil
| MaryLoius324
At first i thought i had a yeast infection but i found that i have UTI. My doctors told me to use vagisil and at first it helped but the pain was still so bad and i found myself applying it every couple of hours. After a while i looked at my vagina because it was hurting so bad and saw that it looked liked blisters and puss and it was disgusting. I do not recommend this to anyone.

Vagisil Review
| Lerobbin
Best personal lube ever. It is the closest thing to natural without any stickiness. Only problem with product is that it no longer seems to be available at any of the drugstores I have checked here in Canada.

Much better than the generic brands. If you are having a problem with itcing or a rash this definitely helps.
