You have very sensitive skin and may need to consider alternative options for hair removal such as Laser Hair removal.

My 14 year old son has small black hairs on his scrotum, but he says he has never had a wet dream how can you tell?
Not to worry...: Parents can just presume that all teen boys will have or have had wet dreams, when parents are talking with boys about puberty. Whether a particular boy says he has had a wet dream or not should make no difference in the conversation. As long as puberty is moving along each year, the "when" and "how many" regarding wet dreams doesn't really matter. ...Read more

Puberty tracks well with bone maturity and if his bone age a year or so behind this is less worrisome. Referral to a pediatric endocrinologist may be needed. ...Read more

Visit a dermatologist to see if there is more going on including thyroid or anemia problems. ...Read more
