This is the ONLY brand I can & will use. First off (I feel like I wouldn't have ever said this 5 years ago) but I stopped using tampons because some one I know got TSS and it was pretty severe so all I use now is Kotex pads. And I honestly didn't have a choice, I have sensitive skin and it seemed like every single other brand out there (name brand or store brand) would cause a rash kind of similar to a diaper rash on a baby (but my skin would instantly start getting irritated within an hour of use) so I was SO relieved that I finally found a pad (Kotex) that didn't irritate my skin and cause a horrific rash. I'm not sure why I have such a issue with other brands but the only difference I've seen on the packaging on Kotex it says they use cotton? I don't know, but this is my favorite brand, and always will be! Sorry if I gave off TMI, I was hoping if some one else has the same issues as me, would come across this and have it help?!
