Does vaginal lubricants containing propylene glycol cause epithelial tissue damage?
No Permanent damage
I understand your concerns about damage caused by propylene glycol.
Let me reassure you that propylene glycol will not cause permanent damage to vaginal epithelium. This is temporary damage to epithelium and not a permanent damage. Vaginal epithelium regenerates fast.
I dont advice you to use steroid or fungal cream.
There are no long term effects to worry about.
Let me know if you need anymore help.
Wash with warm water
Follow sitz bath.
Means sit in a small tub with warm water and antiseptic twice a day.
This will heal.
