Can scented toilet paper cause itching?
Hi, I have been having itching around my genitals for the past 3 weeks. I am not allergic to any type of food and haven't change any soap or clothes. A few weeks back I switched to regular toilet paper to scented toilet paper. I am confused can anyone tell me if this is possible? Can scented toilet paper cause itching?
@eale Hello, you can be allergic to certain chemicals, like fragrance, used in your toilet paper. This can cause a case of vulvitis, a condition that often shows up as itching, burning, redness, or swelling. If you notice these symptoms after using a new type of TP (especially if it's scented) switch brands. If toilet paper is scented, it could upset the pH balance and cause some irritation down there, especially if you have sensitive skin. It's best to stick with something plain and unscented. Thanks!
