My wife is having pain in her breast and itching and burning feeling in my vagina and burning feels while having sex also what should I do
Dr. Megha Tuli
Gynaecologist
Hi.usially such burning in vagina is due to infection. Mostly vaginal infection are yeast however bacterial infections are also possible. I suggest you apply candid v gel to the area. If it does not help visit a Gynaecologist in your area for internal examination and get appropriate prescription for antibiotics
Hello doctor, I am pregnant now (3rd week). I'm using V-wash daily. Can I continue to use it? Will it harm my pregnancy? Pls advice
Dr. Megha Tuli
Gynaecologist
Hi PATIENT to 1mgdoctors. I would not recommend you to use v wash during pregnancy as it does let the vaginal ph stay acidic which is required during pregnancy to prevent infections. It does not harm the baby as such though. I would suggest you to use plain water to maintain the hygiene during pregnancy. You can continue using it again after delivery.
