Can I use a glycolic acid peel on a sensitive area?

Could I use a 40% glycolic peel on my vagina to eliminate razor bumps, discoloration, and to smoothen the surface? Will it heal?

Melapads for pubic bumps and folliculitis from shaving

Rather than a chemical peel, you may want to use a milder daily peel such as Melapads, which contain glycolic and salicylic acid in addition to kojic acid.
