Bladder infection-tampons/vaseline.

I was last week in hospital for Pyelonephritis (kidney infection) and I brought it under my urologist attention that I use Vaseline on my tampons for a type of lubricant and he wasn’t very happy saying it’s a major cause why I get regular bladder infection and he said I should use an antiseptic cream like Savlon-is this safe?

Savlon will probably cause burning. Rather try KY jelly.
