Cuts on clitoris, underneath pubic area been wearing pads for over a month now on Depo-Provera shot,  bumps on the inside on the lips. What can it be?

Irritation from Pads: This is likely irritation from wearing a pad for a prolonged period of time. The labial area needs air. Cleanse the area well, pat dry. Apply an ointment such as neosporin.

Shave my genitals area few months back, now there is pink, raw, skin on the side of scrotum and leg. Maybe from scratching? Can i restore the color?

Shave my genitals area few months back, now there is pink, raw, skin on the side of scrotum and leg. Maybe from scratching? Can i restore the color?

Friction Follies: Shaving the skin results in micro-trauma. This dilates tiny capillaries resulting in redness. It also allows micro-organisms to enter more easily and possibly cause infection. The skin in the groin/scrotal region is very sensitive and thin. Hair in this region decreases irritation from friction and sweat. Repeated shaving of the epidermis and hair removal defeats these protective measures. ...Read more

Plus a small piece of tissue to help minimize staining of underwear or clothing. If any serious swelling or pain develops get it seen by a doctor. Infections in that area can get out of hand (and out of groin). ...Read more
