Burn (Heat Or Fire) (Definition)
A burn is an injury to the skin caused by heat, flames, or chemicals. Burns are more or less severe depending on which layers of the skin are affected. A first-degree burn is in the epidermis, or the top layer of the skin. A second-degree burn affects the dermis, or second layer of the skin. A third-degree burn goes all the way through the skin. A fourth-degree burn extends to deeper structures such as muscle and bone. ...Read more
How do you stop pubic hair from growing i shave like everytime i see hair down there but when it grow it burns alittle and i don't like hair down there?
Kidding???: Pubic hair is a normal part of being 16. If it ever stops growing, you'll have a bigger problem. I realize that the current fashion is to look virtually pre-pubescent, but if you don't want pubic hair, you'll just have to get rid of it. I recommend trimming, not shaving. Shaving can cause serious bacterial infections. Trim carefully, when you're wide awake, sober and have a steady hand. ...Read more
Pain when needing to pee. It hurst just above my pubic line and sometimes burns the middle of my penis too. Could this come with testical enfiction?
What is it?: First, i would need to know what "testical enfiction" is. Please check and confirm it. But for someone at your age and with such symptoms, some forms of urethritis are suspected. Most likely, ct and ultrasound would not help much at all. For the time being, refrain from overindulgence and obsession in sex for now and see someone genuinely knowledgeable in the field soon. Good luck. ...Read more

Stop shaving, 4 now: Razor-bumps result from shaving/cutting the hair too short, thus causing the hair to get stuck under the skin causing the bumps. Basically these are trapped hair follicles. Use of some exfoliating skin lotion/cream may help the trapped hair to come through to surface and thus resolve the bumps. So, stop shaving too closely will reduce this. Laser/electrolysis is expensive, but no bumps! good luck. ...Read more
I have a few reddish/whitish looking tiny pimple sized bumps around my pubic area. Does not itch or burn. Wondering what it could be ?
Use good technique: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving. ...Read more
How long does a chemical burn from Nair on the pubic area take to heal? How do you get rid of the pain?
Variable: Sorry to hear about the burn, Louise. If it's a full thickness epidermal burn, it can take 2 weeks to regenerate. For now, I'd recommend either topical aloe vera (as needed) or lidocaine gel (up to every 4 hours), cotton underwear, and avoidance of jeans. The area may stay a bit red or darker for awhile. Laser hair removal may be a good option in the future. ...Read more
