Brief Answer:
It would not harm

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for contacting healthcare magic.
No it would not harm at all. All it would cause is some excessive lubrication or moisture initially but after few hours due to its hygroscopic action may even cause dryness in vagina. But it should subside after cleaning with mild soap in few days,
