    Hi all. In an excellent recent post, Melissa at Maze Women’s Sexual Health discussed the use of Cool Water Cones as a vaginal aid. Specifically, she wrote:

    “There is a product that I have used with some patients called “cool water cones”, they are hydrocolloid dilators that self-lubricate with the application of water. When cool water is applied, the dilators lubricate and can be inserted, they provide a cooling sensation while dilating. Some patients find these more comfortable to use than plastic or silicone dilators.”

    She further describes how either using cold dilators or the cool water cones will help with the burning sensation as well as decreasing inflammation. She writes:

    “The coldness of the dilator will help numb some of the burning sensation like a local anesthetic. Coldness can also help decrease inflammation as well.”
