  • Allergic reaction to coconut oil!

    Just wanted to warn you ladies to be careful with that coconut oil! I've been having an  allergic reaction to it for the past 5 days! I have blisters on vulva and vag.  It's not such an innocuous cream to use in that area!  Test it out on your inner leg first.
