Hi.
I've gone through your query and I can understand your anxiety.

Your condition might be a "contact dermatitis" resulting from
- the chemicals or materials or Adhesives used up in the pads
- Friction against the skin or
- if not changing pads often leads to the build up of too much moisture & finally acting as a breeding ground for bacteria which in turn resulting in rash or infections.

I advice you to,
- Use all-natural pads made of cotton ( contains no dyes or irritating adhesives & also fragrance-free).

- Change your pads often in a day

- sitz bath to relieve irritation, swelling & soothening.

- Take flagyl antibiotics for a week or use hydrocortisone cream on the outer vulva area

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Regards,
Dr. Yogapriya V, General and family physician.
