Did you get tested? Did it turn out to be herpes? If so, it's not likely related to the toy unless you got it used. If you tested negative for herpes, you're probably allergic to the material. Assuming it's this rabbit, it's made of jelly which LOTS of people react badly to. A reaction that begins 4 days after contact is probably not from the vibrator though.

Yes - jelly toys cause both my wife and I to have a burning sensation/reaction.

I got a bit of a burning sensation from an inflatable latex butt plug once, so now I always cover it with a condom when I use it.

Don't let this one toy ruin your thoughts on toys. Depending on the material you could end up with a reaction such as burning and itching. If I use jelly I end up with major itching and burning with a rash Try using a silicone vibe or dildo

That toy is made of Jelly. A lot of people have had similar reactions to Jelly toys.

I have reactions to Jelly and PVC. I start burning right away. Also, found out I developed a latex allergy too.

Sorry to hear that. But don't let this first one be your last one. You were probably allergic to the jelly which most people are.

Same here! PVC doesn't bother me at all but I did develop a latex allergy, at least when it comes to insertables anyway. The dental hygienist almost fainted the other day when the dentist read from my questionnaire that I have a latex allergy until I explained it to her, poor lady.

Ah yeah I forgot about the wonderful latex allergies I can't use latex myself. Like I mentioned above jelly does a number on me as well.

Never had an allergic reaction to a toy.

There are lots of different options for toy materials, don't let one jelly toy that caused a reaction turn you off all toys forever!

We have had several and no bad reactions.

I've never had a bad allergic reaction to a toy. I once determined a reoccuring UTI was due to a jelly toy though. I don't use jelly anymore.

This should NOT be your last toy. It should be your last JELLY toy!! Not all toys or toy materials are made equal. Take the time to do some research on the materials! Jelly is a pretty dangerous material. In addition to the reactions MANY people have to toys, jelly can also off-gas chemicals which can be bad for you and are porous making them very unsanitary. They can melt and all sorts of other things. Super unsafe.

Eden rates the safety of materials on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the safest and 1 being least safe. Materials that rate a 10 are glass, steel, and silicone. Some silicone variants and alternatives, plastic, properly sealed wood and some other materials rate an 8-9 on the scale. Materials like Jelly and UR3 rate a 2!!!! HUGE difference.
Eden's big list of materials is HERE. On every toy on the site, the material is listed in the details on the left side of the picture on the item's page. The material is a link which, if you click it, will give you more info about the safety of the material. There will also be a safety rating. You can also refine your searches on the site to only display items of materials you select.

Because you are clearly material sensitive, I would strongly recommend sticking with silicone, glass or steel. These are all safe, non-porous, able to be sterilized, and, very importantly in your case, hypoallergenic. You can find some great silicone rabbits and plenty of other toys. Don't write off toys just because you can't use Jelly. Most people can't and those who can, frankly, shouldn't.

A reviewer/contributor on this site called Kira who runs a website called Kira's Kink wrote a Guide to Buying Your First Sex Toy which can be found HERE. You should check it out. While it won't be your first toy, it still has some great info. Her first point is: "1) Take “jelly” out of your vocabulary – Jelly toys are dangerous. They leach harmful chemicals and are made of porous materials. They can cause chemical burn for some women, but even if they don’t burn you they’re still seeping chemicals into your skin. Avoid them. While you’re at it, stay away from rubber, Sil-A-Gel, latex, PVC, etc. Stick to silicone, plastic, glass, metal, or wood."

If the toy is jelly then you might have reacted to that...jelly and my lady bits do NOT get along. I get a bright red rash and it itched until I nearly took the skin off scratching! I went and was tested for bacterial vaginosis and yeast infection but it was just allergic reaction. NOT fun. I hate it case I'd love soft forgiving toys but I find that I can tolerate most TPR toys and softened silicone so I can have a few softer toys.

It's worth mentioning that you might also react to lubricants. Did you use lubricants with the jackrabbit toy? If so, that may be the culprit or a contributing factor. Even if not, your sensitivity to the toy makes it something you should keep in mind. Many lubricants have chemicals that people react to or that may cause infections and other problems. Yuck! At all costs, avoid glycerin, petro-chemicals, pthalates and parabens. Wherever possible, avoid synthetic ingredients. Sliquid Organics and Yes are two good ones. Sliquid is available on EF and Yes can be ordered from the manufacturer.

Ouch I am sorry to hear that but I still wouldn't make that a reason to not try toys again. Just be careful on the material you choose to use Silicone and glass are the 2 main materials I choose to use.

I was going to say, too, I've had a similar reaction, but since it happened when I was using a silicone toy and a water-based lubricant, I knew almost without a doubt the water-based lube. I tossed it out and haven't had any trouble since. Yikes!

I'll only use silicone, plastic, or TPR/TPE, which are safe. I'm scared of a bad reaction so I'll only use those materials.
