Is Campho-Phenique safe to use as a vaginal healing product for irritations and raw spots?

It would add a whole new meaning to "Ring of Fire".
Nice joke, got lot's of response, get a life!
The answers here do not match up with my research. Campho-phenique is pramoxine - it can be used to treat hemorrhoids, anal fissures, vaginal itching, etc. If you have a herpes sore on your vulva, it can provide some relief (yes burning, but if you have herpes you'll be used to that). I'm kind of annoyed by the responses that do not take this question seriously.
I've used it on a boil I had down there, it helped with the pain and healing. It did burn, I used a Q-Tip.
Can anyone please tell me what Campho-Phenique does?

It and Mentholated Vasoline are in the exact same catagory, mildly soothing and simply protective because of the Petroleum in them both. I love the
camphor smell, but it really does little in the way of actual healing, rather just coating and allowing slight protection for the body to heal itself. God bless you.
I have had an itchy skin rash for maybe 6mos.I the doctor made a biopsy and pathology said it was probably an allergic reaction to some medication.I changed all those one by one and still have it to some extent.That's after applying Corticosteroids all this time.If I scratch to hard some of these places turn into sores with scabs .I've made a change lately. I have been using a bare minimum of cortico and have added Capho phenique liquid to my regimen.
Does anyone out there think this will help?
For dogs prone to tracheal stricture (sudden wheezing), put a finger wet with liquid campho-phenique on top of the nose (not on the end!) Wheezing ceases instantly! :-)
Campho-phenique is the best immediate treatment for burns. I keep a bottle in the kitchen cabinet next to the stove and use it whenever I burn myself while cooking. It stings a little at first but immediately thereafter, the pain of the burn goes away and there is no blistering or scarring afterward.
I wonder if anyone has ever used it to treat the skin side effects of radiation therapy.
