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

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