I had seen a few folks recommend turmeric essential oil and so I bought some organic medical grade oil or whatever. I mixed 2 drops with some coconut oil and put it on my vulva and now I’m experiencing some discomfort. It’s not painful but it almost feels hot and tingly down there. Is this normal? Should I discontinue use? I tried a couple drops on my hand last night to see if I’d have an allergic reaction before puttin it down there so I thought I was safe but I’m not sure if this feeling is normal or not.

I had exactly the same reaction. I stopped using it immediately. I had not had a flare up for at least 6 months prior to using this, and then after one application, I had a massive flare up that lasted for 3 weeks.
I would stop if there is discomfort. I have tried natural oils but am sensitive to them. Your female part is more sensitive than your hand. I have to stick with clobetasol and estrace only. Aloe vera gel was okay for me since it's a pretty mellow oil. Good luck! We all react differently.
I just bought the Aloe gel today. I had used it once before and noticed it didn't sting or anything so I am just using now as a moisturizer. I am staying also with clobetasol and estrace because, like you, I have been told to say with steroid cream the rest of my life. I do not want to take any chances and go off of it.
Teineka, I can't use steroid cream due to burning and bad rashes, also any moisturisers withe white paraffin in it. I bought Aloe Vera Gel a few months back and apply morning and bedtime and there has been a remarkable change. White patches almost gone and no itching or pain.Good luck
Hi. I had the same as you, as soon as I applied the mix the whole area felt like it was on fire. I quickly washed it off and haven't gone near it again. It didn't set off a flare up. I stick to using my mix of borax mixed with yes moisturiser twice a day which works well for me.
Hi Alyshia , I also tried and huge flare up .
Stop and go back to basics, i tried nearly everything ladies where recommending 😬
But we all are different and can only tolerate certain things .
Coconut also irritates me 😩
Hope you feel better soon 😘
I've mixed Tumeric powder with coconut oil into a soft paste and applied. That has stopped itching.
