Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

What is the use of pubic hair? Although shaving gives me boils and ingrown hairs, it really makes the odour from my privates better. Any alternatives?

Sexual attraction

Sex
I believe that anthropologically it was an attraction to the opposite sex - both visually, aromatically and for soft touch. Unless there was some illness, the smell was a desired one. If you and your lover prefer less scent, frequent shampooing should be enough to minimize the smell. Scented or baby oil can work too. Perhaps you can learn to like it - it's nature's perfume. Preferable to boils!

Ever since I started shaving my pubic hair off my privates, I have been having ingrown hairs and boils. Why does this happen and how do you treat it?

Stop shaving

Stop shaving your pubic hair. It is there for a purpose.

How to get rid of a boil on an ingrown hair follicle?

Boil

Ingrown_hair
A boil may heal / drain on its own. Wam compresses may help a boil drain spontaneously. If a boil does not drain/heal by it self then it requires antibiotics/surgical drainage.

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

What's the difference between a boil and an ingrown hair?

If Pilonidal, yes

Open-uri20120919-27636-o8hoq4
If this is due to a pilonidal cyst, successful treatment may require surgery in order to excise the cyst contents. If not this could recur. Other standard cysts, abscesses or "boils" may drain spontaneously and may resolve on their own accord with warm soaks or may require incision, drainage and antibiotics.

Removal

An ingrown hair may be causing a localized inflammatory reaction rather than an actual infection that would be treated by antibiotics. The hair should be extracted from the skin, and that should relieve the inflammation.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

How do I tell the difference between a boil & an ingrown hair in an armpit and do physicians deaden before lancing?

Skin lesions

Boil
You may not be able to tell the difference, but the doctor draining this may. Whether they will use a local anesthetic will depend upon the size and position of the "boil". Lancing this is generally not very much more painful than the lesion itself and you will gain much relief from the drainage. Best wishes.

Boil or ingrown hair above pubic line- turning red now purple no pus center. Hurts so bad can't touch- no money for doctor is it ok?

Not really

Ingrown_hair
An infection like this can turn serious if not treated. You need antibiotics and may need an area drained. See if you can locate a free clinic somewhere in your area. In the meantime, try warm wet soaks with a washcloth over the area several times daily.

I just noticed a little bump on one of my larger, deeper stretch marks. It hurts but is soft to the touch. Could it be a boil to ingrown hair?

Could be

Boil
almost anything. Can't tell without seeing it. Ask your doctor if it persists or worsens.
