Why can't I shave my pubic hair?! I'm a female and when I shave and the hair starts to grow it itches like crazy! Is it normal? I've been struggling..

The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair (and lead to more cases of ingrown hairs and itchy pubises). Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave it off. It's just fashion. ...Read more

When you stop using: it, it stops growing hair! So, unless the minoxidil is running down your face while you use it, it should just help locally on your scalp. It won't by itself also increase facial hair. Also the quality of hair is fine and not thick, lustrous hair that is grown. So, if normal facial hair (coarse) is appearing, it may not be because of Minoxidil. See your doctor to examine this for sure. ...Read more

Please get yourself to a physician or healthcare professional to diagnose and treat properly. I doubt this problem will go away nor will it improve on its own. ...Read more
