I shaved my mons pubis earlier today & now I have a really painful bump down there. I used to always get boils cause my skin was so sensitive.
Careful: Make sure you are using a quality razor and moisturizing shaving gel. Shaving always causes small skin openings that can become infected or the hair can become ingrown as it grows back. Moisturize everyday with good eczema cream and use light dose 1% hydrocortisone if irritated. Moist heat for now and some neosporin.

Hello there, I am very, very strict on hygiene, but i regularly get boils. Could the infection be in my blood? if so how can i get rid of it forever?

Infections in the bloodstream are very serious. We do not usually see bacteria in the bloodstream seed into the skin. Have your next boil cultured. We need to know if it is a resistant bacteria, this will guide treatment. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
