?Shaving: If you shave your pubic hair this may cause abrasions or small cuts on the skin and may lead to infections in the hair follicles (folliculitis). Refrain from shaving or use a scissors and clip. Also, wear cotton underwear and avoid perfume scented soaps and other products in the genital area.
