I get very bad red itchy bumps after shaving my pubic area which I believe is folliculitis. Should I just pluck the infected hair out?

Folliculitis: You are correct about the folliculitis. However, I don't recommend wasting your time plucking them out individually. If you are going to pluck them you might as well wax and save yourself time. There is no scientific benefit of shaving vs waxing for the removal of hair. Always monitor for infection. ...Read more

My vagina hairs are curly but how can I prevent from getting acne/bumps after shaving , is there something I can use ? Or do ?

Review with your doc: You are on many meds for a young person and I would caution you about shaving the vagina. The bikini line area is the area that is safer to shave and to avoid secondary acne, abscesses or folliculitis you may want to wash with betadine soap you could buy at the drugstore.

Smooth shave for most, but disastrous for those of us with a curl to our hair. The hair then grows and curls beneath the surface causing bumps. ...Read more
