Oh gawd, no, no, no! See a doctor for medicines specifically for that sensitive area. Or at least ask a pharmacist to help you pick something that might help.

I think it's good for wound healing, I know my Mom always had it in the medicine basket.

It's the absolute "best" to apply to cold sores/fever blisters on the lips! I tried everything in the stores and nothing seemed to really help. A cousin told me to rub in a bit at the first sign of itching, or appearance of a fever blister, and it works! It dries the blister up really fast, so at least it won't develope into a huge blister/sore. I carry one small tube in my purse, and have a tube for at home use. I won't ever be without it.

My father swore that campho worked better than anything-- for wounds, sores, fever blisters-- I keep it on hand because it is very useful.

Anytime I start to get a little sore in my mouth, I dip a q-tip in the bottle and apply it -- works great.

Sometimes my gum gets sore, red, and swollen and I dab a little on it so I can brush my teeth without it killing me, and it gets well fast.

It was the remedy for athlete's foot and other similar types of fungi back in the days when there were no specialized products on the market. It is good for oral herpes outbreaks (cold sores), but do use the tube type for this. The kind in the bottle is stronger, and tends to sting a bit.
