Would removing hair with a pumice stone leave black spots like shaving? Have light complexion and dark hair
Pumice stone: The pumice stone may or may not basically grind the hair off the surface of the skin but it would take a lot of friction which will primarily affect the skin surface and not the hair. All that rubbing can cause a pretty significant rash and erosions of the surface. That can result in infection and later when it heals in darkening or blotchiness of the skin. Definitely not recommended. ...Read more

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.

Always monitor for infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
