bath oil

Since a couple of weeks after my hyster (June 04) I've been using a hot tub/spa in a swim club I belong to. Despite the chemicals, other people and probably the occasional kiddies who piddle in it I've been OK vaginally. If you're uncomfortable check with your doc but it sounds to me like such a relaxing bath will do you more good than harm. anna

I know with me, if I use bubble bath stuff I can get an irritation. So, I put the oil on after the bath.. just don't soak in it.

Besides.. if you put the oil on after the bath, it will seal in the water on your skin.

Good luck,

bath oil

The radiation team have recommended a brand called Simple soap which is a available in the UK - it's actually soap free and is hypoallerengic - no additives. They do bubble bath as well. It's actually really nice - my MIL uses it as she's allergic to EVERYTHING.

If you can't get it stateside, I'd happily send you a care package if you PM your address to me - it's not v expensive!
