I have wihte flakes on my pubic hair is it sry skin or crabs? I have white flakes on my pubic hair it don't itch but my body itches is it just really dry skin?

Human: Human pubic lice or "crabs" are typically very small but can be seen attached to the pubic hair and may have a characteristic bluish-gray color around the area. They skin can become a bit red and itchy and may develop some white flakes. They are spread from sexual contact. I would see a dermatologist so that they can differentiate between crabs and other common conditions that can occur in that area such as eczema, psoriasis, etc. ...Read more

Why can't I shave my pubic hair?! I'm a female and when I shave and the hair starts to grow it itches like crazy! Is it normal? I've been struggling..

That may be a sign: May be a sign from beyond. A sign that there is no real need nor any mandate to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair (and lead to more cases of ingrown hairs and itchy pubises). Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave it off. It's just fashion. ...Read more

I have discharge that then dries kind of brown and stick to my pubic hair and my vagina itches?

Yeast infection: Typically, when there's itching it can be due to a yeast infection. Discharge that's brown is typically old menstrual blood. You can see a doctor or clinic and get an exam to test for yeast. If the brown discharge is bothering you, that is, if it's lasting for more than a few days, then you might want to consider some hormones to help regulate your cycle so that you don't have as much spotting. ...Read more

Infected gland: There are numerous glands at the vaginal entrance. These glands secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. Sometimes the openings of these glands become obstructed, causing fluid to back up into the gland. At times, the fluid within the cyst may become infected. See your doctor to get it drained if needed and treated. ...Read more

I recently trimmed some of my pubic hair, and now that area is very itchy, especially when wearing underwear. Is there any way to stop the itching?

Don't shave closely.: MANSCAPING: If you shave very closely, you increase the itchiness caused by hairs caught beneath the skin surface. If you want a "neat" appearance, try trimming the hair with an electric clipper instead. For itch now, some people get relief from aloe vera gel, hydrocortisone cream, or Gold Bond medicated powder. If itching continues, consider a private virtual visit with a HealthTap doctor. ...Read more

Lots of people shave: Lots of people shave downstairs, so if the patient behaves unembarrassed, then she will feel unembarrassed. The pubic skin is very sensitive, so sometimes the razor and many times the "sharp" cut ends of hairs will cause itching and irritation as they rub or poke the delicate skin. If there is not bacterial or yeast skin infection, many people use a few days of Hydrocortisone 1% cream for relief. ...Read more

Hair regrowing: As hair regrows after shaving or waxing, it is not uncommon to have itching or irritation. When the hair is short it can be more rough on surrounding skin.

Have not shared clothes or bed with anyone except family. Not sexually active. Can sometime itching of pubic hair be crabs?

Possibly...: If pubic lice (crabs) are causing the itching, you should be able to see lice an nits (eggs). The nits look like tiny while spots attached to pubic hairs. The lice can be difficult to see, especailly in dark skinned persons; they appear as apparent flat brown spots (about 1 mm) on the skin next to pubic hairs (use bright light and a magnifying glass). If in doubt, see a doctor. ...Read more
