Prone to getting yeast infections? Which lube do you prefer?

Sinfully Sinfully
So I'm prone to getting both yeast infections & UTIs & I also have really sensitive skin and break out in rash easy. Does anyone have a lube they could recommend for sensitive skin and that doesn't contribute to yeast infections? Thanks a bunch.

I personally really like the Sensuous Beauty Love Balm in Lavender Bergamont. It's not your traditional lube, it's made from coconut oil so most of the time it's a solid. Because of this I keep a hot plate thing by the bed. In the summer when it is warm you don't need this. A lot of the stuff in it has anti bacterial properties so it is good for people who get infections. It may be worth a try as long as you don't mind heating it up and you just need to be careful about getting it on your sheets!

I am also very prone to yeast infections and have loved my ID millennium silicone lube. Also my roommate is allergic to nearly everything and she has had wonderful luck with ID moments water based lube. My best advice is to get oodles of samples and spot test them. First on regular skin and learn the texture and smell that you like, then once they past the first test, put some on your labia. Once that is okay, try it masturbating when you know you won't be with a partner (just in case shit goes down). This is how I found a good one. Generally pick hypo-allergenic with no parabin and glycerin, and for yeasty issues, NO FLAVORS (I learned this the hard way). Also no flavored condoms for vaginal use.

I hope you find one that helps! Also share with me if you think of it, I need to expand my horizons.

Earthly Body has a waterbased lubricant-- it has 3 ingredients. Pjur Med is also for people who are hypoallergenic but I would probably go for the latter. Stay clear of lubes that have glycerine and parabens.
