Epsom salt?

My doctor says I need to soak in Epsom salt twice a day to help with swelling and soreness in my vagina and rectum. Sorry if it's tmi but have any of you had to soak or had those issues?

I haven't used it for my vagina but I have for my feet. It does work, just used warm water with it. They also have scented ones, I prefer the lavender.
