I want to bleach my genital area, but I’m afraid of the side effects if there are any. Please help me find a doctor around Durban.

Dr Eve responds:

I strongly advise you not to do this. Don’t put products of any kind on your vulva or inside your private parts. It will damage your skin and the inner lining of the of your private part. This will put you at more risk of contracting HIV/Aids and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Keep looking at your vulva and fall in love with it as it is.
