Scented toilet tissue

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi

I have just read that someone was cured from their uti by changing the brand of lol roll.

I have suffered for over 10 years with UTI and bladder pain so if something so simple as changing my toilet roll could be the answer I'm elated!!!!

Has any one tried this and how do you know what toilet roll would be the culprit ?

    Hi Kim, I have never heard of anything like this curing bladder pain and IC or UTI. Someone may be pulling your leg. Toilet paper is toilet paper, no?

      Hi

      It was on another thread that I saw on here. Apparently the chemicals in it can affect the PH levels

      I have no idea what the difference between tissue rolls is

    Hi Kim, I have never heard of unscented/non coloured Loo roll curing UTI's however I stopped using coloured loo roll many years ago as I did find that the dyes aggravated parts you don't want aggravated, also a lot of manufacturers use bleach in the making of loo rolls, I won't buy the scented variety either, I also wish it was that simple, do you wear pads of any kind? if so don't use the ones with the artificial scent as that can aggravate as well, and I expect you already know about nothing perfumed, ie.bubble bath/scented shower gel/soap etc etc, I tend to use unscented soap as I never feel that water on it's own is enough but that's just a personal thing, only wear cotton undies and try not to wear anything too tight all the time such as control panties, the list of do's and don't's appears to be endless.

    All the best

    Phoebe.
