I have dry hands and started wearing handcream (which happens to be scented) with gloves at night. Now that I’m nidah, do I have to stop this? (What about it the cream may remind the husband of relations?) The smell Is not so strong, but my hands smell afterwards. It may remind him of relations because it was used then as well.


You do not have to worry about this because as you said, the smell is only slight, and it wasn’t used for not that. This would be similar to a woman using deodorant whle she is a nida, even though it has a slight smell, and the smell of this is even less.

Best Wishes


Chut Shani ( nidda) 195-1 S”K 1-13, Poskim
