Does anyone else feel chaffed while using panty liners?
I've been using those Always liners that came out when my DD was born. Can't think of the name. I just feel kinda raw down there. Anyone know of some softer ones?
kbuns:I had to go and buy some baby wipes for my poor vagina lol At work we have really cheap TP and since I'm peeing all the freaking time I think I wiped myself raw. So i went and get some calming baby wipes and that has worked wonders.
Maybe that's the reason I feel raw. Hmmmm, I never thought about it like that. We have to use 1-ply at home because of the septic tank. I hate it, but whatever. Maybe I'll steal some of my daughter's wipes. LOL
Any chance it's time for new underware with better fit? I had to go up a size in my normal style because they were tight around my hips and in the leg openings, and alot of the irritation I was getting from the pantyliners has subsided.
I know this may sound like a gross suggestion to most of you, but give this a try- As far as having to use 1-ply because of the septic system, try getting a smaller trash can with a lid to keep by the toilet and throwing away the TP once used (#1 only!). I LOVE Charmin Ultra soft.
I was on a humanitarian aid mission a few years ago in Bolivia, and you can't flush tp at all there, so trash cans were very common by the toilets. I don't do it here at home, but if I had to to use softer tp... I would! And just take out that small trash daily to prevent smells.
Kotex liners have like a cottony top layer. I use those.
I'm having the same-ish problem though? maybe? but it feels like everything down there is swollen insanely bad, not chaffed (unless it's the same thing) and it itches. Not like a yeast infection, it's like the outer lips that itch. ugh so annoying.
