Doctors warn against the worrying trend of using toothpaste as s.e.xual lubricant

Doctors warn against the worrying trend of using toothpaste as s.e.xual lubricant. You would think that most people would know better than to try this out for themselves at home, but apparently not. Over the last few months, a number of posts have cropped up on Reddit detailing people’s experiences of using toothpaste as a lubricant during masturbation or s.e.x – and they sound incredibly painful.

As such, a medical expert has stepped in to warn people of the dangers that can occur if you put toothpaste anywhere other than your teeth. Dr Shree Datta, a consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for MyHealthcare Clinic, revealed how the product can cause infections or even chemical burns if used on the genitals.

Speaking to Mirror Online, she said: “Toothpaste can contain ingredients such as bleaching agents, peppermint or scented oils, which can be irritating or abrasive. “These may cause a mild chemical burn and blister on any area of sensitive skin. I’d definitely advise against putting toothpaste into or onto your genitals.

“These products are specially designed for oral use and can disrupt the balance of your vagina flora, which might lead to thrush or bacterial vag!nos!s. “They can also damage the delicate skin in that area and the vaginal wall, affecting the amount of pleasure you experience during s.e.x.”

She added: “I would not recommend using toothpaste, or any other bathroom product as a lubricant for that matter on your genitals, as these products are not recommended for this use and can irritate the skin, as well as disrupt the cellular balance of the skin on your genitals.

“Silicone or water-based lubricants which are designed and intended for use during s.e.x are the best products to invest in.” “These may cause a mild chemical burn and blistering on any area of sensitive skin. I’d definitely advise against putting toothpaste into or onto your genitals.

“Silicone or water-based lubricants which are designed and intended for use during sex are the best products to invest in.” The terribly unpleasant symptoms Dr Datta refers to are the exact same ones social media users reported experiencing.

In one Reddit post, a man claims he got a chemical burn after putting toothpaste on his penis and it wasn’t pretty. He recalled: “Later that day when I went to use the toilet, when I took down my trousers I saw some discolouration to my d***, I had a look and all the skin was red and raw, with some parts of the skin beginning to scab. Not good.

“The pain was really really bad, it was really hard to walk and keep a straight face.” Another also confessed to using toothpaste as a lubricant and said that the pain had been so bad, they had to take painkillers.

They wrote: “I accidentally used toothpaste as lube. It’s the morning now and it’s still really inflamed. There is less pain but I’m on painkillers so there is some help. But please, for the love of god, in whatever universe you’re thinking to do this, DO NOT USE TOOTHPASTE AS LUBE.” This isn’t the first time doctors have had to warn against using toothpaste for things other than cleaning teeth.

Last summer, doctors issued an urgent warning not to put toothpaste on burns. Dr Kamarul Ariffin, of Malaysia, explained it could have very unpleasant side effects.  To prove his point, the medic shared a horrific image of a woman’s hand, after she’d attempted to treat a hot oil burn with Colgate toothpaste.

Instead of making her wound better, the woman’s hand had swelled in size to a point where it was almost unrecognisable. The picture also shows the hand is covered in incredibly painful looking blisters. As a result, he warned people not to use home remedies as they could cause infection and irritation.
