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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If it doesn't go away, an ingrown hair can become infected, permanently darken the skin, or leave behind a scar, especially if you've been scratching or picking at it. If an ingrown hair is bothering you or has become infected, your doctor can make a small cut in your skin with a sterile needle or scalpel to release it or prescribe medicine. ...Read more
I have an itchy bump within my pubic hair. It is about half a centimetre large. It is hard and doesn't produce any puss. What could it be?
Cyst: It is probably a seborrheic (coming from oil glands) or epidermal inclusion cyst, both benign lesions. It is probably itchy because of surrounding dry skin. It doesn't sound like the worrisome things: cancer/infection. Both of these would likely have open or irregular surfaces, be draining, or be darkly pigmented. You can put some Aquaphor or Vaseline on it. Still questions? Have your doc check:) ...Read more
