What is irritant contact dermatitis of the vagina?
Irritant contact dermatitis of the vagina causes the skin of the vagina to become red, sore, or irritated after coming in contact with a substance. It can be caused by contact with water, soap, powders, cream, and clothing. It can be caused by irritants or friction.
Avoid using products that may irritate your vagina. The dermatitis should go away a few days after you remove what’s causing it. To help prevent contact dermatitis, avoid douching and using vaginal washes.
