    Hi there, Dharampal -


    I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I'm only a layperson, but I did some reading and see that Neosporin should not be used on the eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina, according to its manufacturer. So it looks like women suffering from vaginal infections need to see their doctor to get an appropriate treatment for their specific infection.


    Here are some links that might be helpful for you!  Best of luck to you!

    I don't think so, though it may not harm you, but you are safest by checking with your pharmacist or doctor.


    Or, from the Neosporin web site, they ask that you call with any questions like this:


    "For more specific product usage information, such as product descriptions, warnings, and ingredients, please call 1-800-223-0182."

    Definitely do not use neosoorin ointment on your vaginal area. I made the mistake of using it down there without reading up on it and had a severe allergic reaction. It caused severe itching, pain, and caused an infection. Lesson learned, read up on medicine before using in an area I haven't previously been told by a physician to use. READ MORE
