Can you tell me how could I save my pubic hair without getting razor burn?

Razor burn: Insure that you use fresh sharp blades vice dull blades. If the hair is more than several mm long – then trim it before shaving it. Wash the area before shaving – warm water can help to soften the hairs. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in the direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard.

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.

Many possibilities: There are too many kinds of genital rash to even guess at the cause. However, probably not an STD: most genital rashes are not STDs, and no STD is likely to cause both genital and non-genital rash at the same time. See your personal physician or a dermatologist. Good luck!

Works well dark hair: If the hair is brown or black the area can be treated with long term to permanent hair reduction. Expect 4-6 sessions about 4 weeks apart. For caucasians all laser types work, and for darker skin the ndyag is appropriate.

Herpes or razor burn I shaved 3 days ago. I have several small pimples now at the top o my pubic area. No burning or tingling, but pain in my thigh?

Herpes or razor burn I shaved 3 days ago. I have several small pimples now at the top o my pubic area. No burning or tingling, but pain in my thigh?

Difficult to assess: Visualization of the bumps would likely be necessary to determine the true cause, since the symptoms you are describing are not consistent with one over the other. Herpes lesions are typically blistered or ulcerated (open), while razor burn/folliculitis lesions appear more as red pimples. Folliculitis however, does not usually cause referred pain, while herpes often does.

Hi I get razor burn and ingrown hairs from time to time. I shaved my pubic region Friday and noticed light bleeding in two spots at the top of my vulva where the hair is near where it folds and has lots of moisture. I had sex a few times over the weekend

Needs to be seen: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Folliculitis is one possibility. Yeast is a possibility and over the counter fungal cream will fix it. Trauma from recent intercourse if possible. Herpes is an std which can cause this. Other possibilities too. Schedule an exam or a virtual visit

How can you tell the difference between razor burn and herpes?

How can you tell the difference between razor burn and herpes?

Razor Burn & Herpes: Razor burns are initially caused by the act of hair being pushed back into the follicle during the process of shaving. As a result, the follicles become inflamed and the skin turns red - may develop an ingrown hair and/or larger bumps. Herpes, however, forms small painful blisters. They usually appear as small fluid-filled painful blisters on the skin and mucous membrane of the body.

What are best remedies for razor burn? And how to prevent it?

What are best remedies for razor burn? And how to prevent it?

Cut gently: Razor burn is from excessive irritation of the skin when shaving. If you have very tough hair, wet the face with water or shaving cream before shaving but avoiding cutting too closely. Another option would be using an electric razor which can do the job.
