Aunt Vadge: is there a cream I can use to heal a vag shaving cut?

Dear Aunt Vadge, 

I was shaving my vagina and I accidentally shaved inside my vagina lips and I cut myself. When I pee, it bleeds and burns. Is there any cream I can get to make it better or does it heal itself?

Sincerely,
Shaved
Age: 19
Country/Area: Miami,florida

Dear Shaved,

Put a bit of paw paw, Vaseline or vulvar-friendly cut’s cream over the cut to protect it. When you pee, get a cup of warm water, and pour it over your vulva as you pee to dilute the acidic urine, to stop the irritation and bleeding. Besides that, it will heal by itself, so don’t touch it.

The vulva heals pretty quickly, so it’ll sort itself out in a few days.

Warmest regards,
Aunt Vadge
