Allergies to ky lubricant

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies to ky lubricant


Avatar m tn Has to use lubrication for physical reasons but tends to react with anything other than KY jelly. I personally feel that KY jelly makes a past that with the feminine condoms that I prefer we use has a paste like consistency. And just feels disgusting. I have know problems with lubes as a rule just KY and she has not really experimented with differing types as she finds a vaginal/ vulval rash discomforting. As would most people I'd imagine.
Avatar f tn Could this be Allergic reaction to latex condom or allergic reaction to softsoap anitbacterial hand soap or allegy to KY intrigue personal lubricant or is it herpes? or friction from being dry during intercourse from a huge man with wide large penis?
481700 tn?1208314987 Try to make sure your pee is never bright yellow- ie drink tonnes of water and dont wear tight pants or underwear. That should help. Try to use lubricant (KY is the best) and being on top is the best position it seems. If the pain is left after a "break" from having sex then it is probably an inflammation problem. Go see a doctor and ask for an investigation into IC and also a pelvic exam and ultrasound if you can. Just to be sure.
Avatar n tn I was unable to use condoms. They made me miserable. I am also unable to use stuff like KY jelly cause it irritates my skin. You may be allergic to the condom or stuff that is lubricated on the condom.
Avatar f tn Have you tired lubricant to help you stay wet ?
551885 tn?1300387422 i know we are going to have to do something different to keep this like work...but everyday? I wish, but that would never happen! I know what you mean, in highschool they act like if you KISS a boy you are going to get pregnant! HA! How long were you trying this time mapes??? and what worked?
Avatar f tn Just keep the area clean and lubricated with KY, then, to allow the skin irritation to heal up quicker. If it still bothers you in a couple weeks, go to the doc and have them do a stool sample and draw blood for you. It is possible the constipation has sort of stretched out where the bowels come out, and it may be leaking a little there for a while, until it gets itself straight again. That leaking out can make it itch, too. So, again, keep it clean and lubricated to stop the itching.
Avatar f tn Hello, Continuous and rough intercourse can definitely cause tissue trauma during menopause. You can use local lubricants like KY jelly to help with the vaginal dryness. Topical estrogen creams could also help by increasing local circulation and attaining an easy orgasm. This should however be best prescribed by your gynaecologist. Dryness of vagina is also a manifestation of diabetes. So please get your blood sugar levels and HB a1C levels done.
Avatar f tn Condoms often are treated with spermacide, and can be made out of different materials as well. If you used any kind of sexual lubricant (KY, scented products, etc) there is another possible allergy source. And, since the labial area is very VERY sensitive, once even a minor irritation has begun it can be hard to resolve. Using a new soap can also cause problems...Dial is pretty strong.
Avatar n tn This is just my personal experience, though. Everyone is different. 6. You may want to try some ky or other water based lubricant. It isn't a sign of dilitation, just dryness that accompanies pregnancy from time to time. Best wishes and sorry that this is so lengthy! .
Avatar n tn try something as simple as soaking in the bathtub with epsom salts thrown in too ( cheap, easy to find and how much to use on the back of the box ). Helps to soothe irritated skin and dry out any infection.
Avatar m tn A much more healthy and definitely cheaper alternative to KY Jelly or any other similar lubricant is to make up your own lubricant with simple methyl cellulose and clean tap water. Methyl cellulose can be bought at many health food stores as a fine white powder. Many people with intolerance to wheat use it as an ingredient in wheat free baking. Just 1/4 of teaspoon (1.25 ml) whipped up in a glass of warm water will not have any of these unforeseen complications. Good Luck, Mr.

Good to know about the olive oil, though then a lot of things will smell like olive oil! Hee,hee. Re. yeast infections, you might want to look adding a vaginal probiotic called Fem-Dophilus, recommended to me by two drs. Lots of info. on it online. It can be taken, I think, on an ongoing basis to prevent vaginal bacterial and yeast infections.
Avatar f tn Wish me luck. Forgot to mention that i used to use the lubricant KY warming liquid and had to stop because it would cause irritation and swelling. Now i use a water based lubricant which is great no irritation or swelling (doesnt last as long) but it does work.
307897 tn?1242422860 Hi! Lots of patience and LOTS of lube!! Vagisisil personal lubricant is better for me than KY. It feels more like the real stuff. We laugh(to keep from crying) and call it Vag-UN - seal!!LOL. It SUX to have paper cuts feeings on your monkey all the time!!(Ha!
Avatar n tn I wish I could remember the name of the stuff but I'm sure you could ask your doctor or google it. I'm hyper sensitive to alot of things (nut allergies, nickel allergies- really bad like if it touches me for a short period of time I break out in giant rashes) so if you are too- Maybe you have the same problem I did...... OKAY NOW i have to ask: what are the chances of a guy giving me a yeast infection? Yes, I'm incredibly stupid and hooked up with a guy w/out protection.
Avatar n tn I've tried a number of differnt remedies from Neosporin, to Vitamin E gel, to Bandaid cut stuff to hydoperoxide (which tends to be my test to see if they are still open (fizzing and stinging and that means they are still open). Ive even resorted to blistex. Nothing seems to fix this. any suggestions out there. We now ALWAYS use some sort of Lube (KY gel or Wet) but it doesnt seem to help.
Avatar n tn To: exploringtraveler - I'm wondering if your using the KY to treat the tears or if you think the KY may have given you the tears?
Avatar n tn This tearing is not related to intercourse since my husband and I are unable to do that due to the pain it causes me. There is no real pain otherwise. I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area. The entire vaginal area is very itchy and if I scratch or rub the skin at all I often give myself one of these tears. It seems as if the skin is very thin. There are no other symptoms that I am aware of. I have had blood work and a biopsy done.
Avatar n tn It was in my bath gel, bar of soap, condoms, spermacide, ky jelly AND my deoderant. In many cases, it was the one of the main ingredients. It took a while to figure out what was plauging me. Doctors were no help. They would usually say it was my diet or that I wasn't following through with the instructions to keep taking meds even after it cleared up. I knew that wasn't the case.
Avatar n tn Also, I've heard of conditions called lactobacilliosis and cytolytic vaginosis (overgrowth of lactobacilli). My symptoms do not appear to be related to my menstrual cycle - there is no particular pattern - but could overgrowth of lactobacilli still be my problem? I would like to hear from anyone who has suffered from lactobacilli overgrowth. Sorry for the long post but I really would appreciate some advice!
Avatar n tn If anyone gets an answer from the doc, let me know! I'm going to try to schedule another appointment this week to see if she can help me out.
Avatar n tn I pretty positive I have found my answer and I hope it help all of you ladies. I had skin issues, allergies to soaps, detergents, foods, etc. when I was a kid and had issues with being red and irritated below. These faded as I got older. After having my first daughter, we bought a house in mexico. My skin would get really dry, cracked rashy, going from the cold of the state of washington to the warm and humidity of mexico.
Avatar n tn Hey gals, So I think I'm having the same problem. In high school I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst with suspicions of endometriosis and put on Ortho-tricyclen. I was not sexually active at the time and didnt have any problems. I was taking this for about 2 1/2 years when the severe cramping, etc. began again and was switched to OrthoNovum 1/35.
Avatar n tn There are preservatives in wine - maybe that's what I'm allergic/sensitive to. I have allergies (mold, ragweed, cats, etc.) and take 1 Allegra/day when needed - still taking that. It could also be the black kohosh I suppose or God only knows what else. BUT - I know that since I stopped drinking the red wine and stopped the vitamins, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO SLEEP THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH!!!!! That seems to be a miracle to me. I used to wake myself up from scratching. I am still going to the dr.
Avatar n tn Maybe that is to blame. I think I might be allergic to KY lubricant because I remember months ago I used it down there and I think some of it went into my urethra and it burned for a little more than a day. When I urinated it seemed to help clear it out. But now the vibrations and strange burning pain felt around the tip of the penis gets worse after I ****, but it doesn't hurt WHILE I ****. I wish a doctor who knows what is going on would find this site. I told my doc about it.
280700 tn?1210287416 I had a trigger shot on CD 15 and I'm not supposed to test until day 30. But, I started testing to see when the trigger was out of my system (I'd get a negative test when the hcg from the trigger was gone). But, I havent gotten a negative yet! I dont know if it's still the shot or if it's early pregnancy, but I'll let you know as soon as I do!
