Genetics & luck: We don't have much, if any, control over genetics & luck when it comes to hair color, distribution & loss. Yes, we can color/bleach our hair. We can shave, tweeze, pluck, wax, laser etc. We can try combs, medications & surgery to make it grow elsewhere. But there's no explaining why/when hair turns white/grey. Can't even blame it on our children!

I shaved my pubic hair for the first time today with a razor. I can find small hairs under my skin. What should I do?

Agree and....: Have seen numerous infections in people shaving pubic area, some of which have required surgery. Consider using a clipper rather than a razor, to avoid having small cuts which can allow bacterial overgrowth to develop. Use antibacterial soap in area, make sure everything is clean!

Why does pubic hair grow faster than the hair on my head?

God..: Your creator programmed it that way. May be at your age the importance of pubic area is more than the head (scalp).

Does your pubic hair always match your natural head hair color?

Does your pubic hair always match your natural head hair color?

Hair color: Pubic hair and axillary (armpit) hair can vary in color considerably from the hair of the scalp. In most people it is darker, although it can also be lighter. In most cases it is most similar in color to the eyebrows of the individual. On some individuals, pubic hair is thick and/or coarse; on others it may be sparse and/or fine; these varieties may appear in either sex.

Red raw skin after waxing pubic hair. Any thing I can do?

For how long?: Waiting is the simple answer. Some times an over the counter burn cream might help. Patience is also reported olive oil and coconut oil as being soothing to the skin. You may want to rethink having this procedure done again if you were that sore.

Dry skin in groin: Ringworm is a fungal infection on the skin and may infect different areas of the body. If the fungi infect the area around the groin, referred to as jock itch or tinea cruris, an individual may experience symptoms such as red, scaly patches of skin. Treatment can be with Lamisil (terbinafine) cream.

Jock Itch!: It sounds as if what you could have is jock itch, a type of fungal infection. It can also be a yeast infection, albeit less likely. Both are esily treated. Your physician can determine which and you should see them for treatment.

Use moisturizers: And defer shaving for a while. Avoid scented products. Vaseline, Lubriderm, Cetaphil, Jergens, Organic Coconut Oil, ------- any of theses should work.

In my pubic hair area my skin is really dry and itchy and I do clean shave it and the skin is always dry and even when my hair grows back?

In my pubic hair area my skin is really dry and itchy and I do clean shave it and the skin is always dry and even when my hair grows back?

Skin irritation: Your skin is definitely irritated. That could be from shaving (an otc cortisone cream twice a day should do the trick), some eczema that you have developed in the area (again try the cortisone cream) or it could be a fungus (for that, try Lamisil (terbinafine) cream twice a day for a week or two). If that doesn't work, you should see your dermatologist.

Pubic cyst: There are multiple possibilities including infection vs pilonidal cyst. if it is painfull and redness around it see a physician for antibiotics and may be drainage. If this is near the genital area it could be related to sexually transmitted disease also. Keep the area clean meanwhile and avoid scratching the area

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?

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.

When I masturbate, my skin rubs on my pubic hair and causes a red painful area over time. Is there anything I can do to keep my skin from irritation?

When I masturbate, my skin rubs on my pubic hair and causes a red painful area over time. Is there anything I can do to keep my skin from irritation?

Friction Burn: 2 things that could help. One, you could use lotion or lubricant to reduce friction when sliding back and forth over the area. You might also, if agreeable to you try to trim the hair in the area (shorter hair will not pull as much) or even try shaving that one little area or the hair so it isn't caught. You could stop masturbating but there's no fun in that solution!

I have sore bumps under my skin in my pubic hair what are those?

Probably inflamed: Hair follicle or folliculitis. Bacteria from skin proliferate in the hair follicle, much like a pimple. If it is severe, you need antitiotics, or even surgical drainage if it is really bad.
