This might be a little off topic but any suggestions about what kind of soap to use to clean myself while I heal after drainage of a bartholin abscess. I've been using dial gold soap which is the antibacterial soap but I think I'm cleaning myself too much and it's causing irratation. My skin is really dry and I'm just kind of freaking out about it. Any kind of info would be nice! Thank you.

    I think the Dial Gold is good. Maybe just cut down how much your cleaning that area? If you're just now recovering, plain water at first would be enough.

    I have went through this as well, after the healing what soap to use. I useĀ 

    "summers eve", it works great for me. I have been using it for months now and I have NO complaint. It is more natural for women, it doesn't dry you out or anything. All those other soaps are way to harsh to use int that area. Some people think that if you use that soap you ahve an odor problem, which is untrue. It is mad for women in general no matter if you have a problem or not. Good Luck I hope this helps you alittle..
