Sure: Sounds like the color of old blood under the skin. This is probably from the trauma of shaving. Stop doing it. If the hair is something that must go, try using a hair removing cream. Keep it on the outside. By the way, the vagina is what is inside. Check out the picture. You can see the hair on the pubis at the top right. The vagina is between the labia on inside. ...Read more

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. With a vaginal bacterial infection discuss avoiding more problems with your doctor. Be well. ...Read more

Listen to your body: You are shaving a very sensitive area. The razor causes trauma to the skin, resulting in irritation. Stop shaving the area, use a protective emollient like Eucerin, and if there is no improvement in a week or two, get a medical exam. ...Read more
