    But just a query to the ladies - have any of you experience bad itching down below or on your bottom from sanitary pads? I use to use a brand that use to bring me out in bad red nasty rashes - so I changed to a different brand. And only recently I have begun itching again, red sore patch. I would use tampons, but I don't get on with them so I just put up with the pads. Im now beginning to think perhaps I am allergic to something that is used in the pads? . . .

    Anyone experienced anything similar? . .

    Are you using scented ones, try switching to unscented?

    I would get some washable organic cotton pads from a website, they will not cause irritation.

    are you sure you're not just leaving them on too long? a bit like how babies get nappy rash because they wear their nappies for a long time and the friction creates the rash?

    I don't get on with them either... they get stuck when I try to get them out

    Try going for unscented ones, as somebody's said. The cheaper brands tend to be unscented, I think. If that doesn't help maybe try again with tampns or possibly a mooncup (there's a wiki on them somewhere)...though that might not work if you have difficulty with tampons.

    either you buy the super big ones which can be painful to get out anyway or the string goes missing, i always thought tampons were pretty easy to use.

    Those are seriously lifesavers. It's a bit tricky to learn to use them at first but it's well worth it and you won't have to worry about allergy either because they are made of silicon.

    I was using unscented one's before and I still itched badly - the one's I am using now are lightly scented and have never had an issue with them until today!

    I will have a search for them and see if those stop the itching - thanks.

    I don't get on with them meaning - I do not like them and I just find them uncomfortable (and yes I do put them in the right hole).

    I change every few hours (if I am having a heavy bleed). When im at the end, I change about 2/3times a day.

    No I have purchased the correct one's that fit inside my muff properly - not the super large bullets! :rolleyes:
