Q: Im 13 years old and for the first time like last month or so i had shaved my pubic area. After doing so it was itchy down their for about 3 days, then i noticed 2 little pimple bumps on the right flap of my pubic area. They don't hurt at all they just sit their unless i touch them i dont notice them. I have never had sex before in my life. Im very worried about this and i want to be discret about it, my mom doesnt know no one knows i need help NOW! ...Also last month i started my period for the first time if that helps at all. Im guessing it could be hairs growing or bumps from shaving with a razor for the first time anything , anything will help thank you!
A: Hey, I just started shaving my pubic area recently too. You can get shaving gel or cream, and a little baby oil on the area after shaving really cuts down on the itching, and can help keep the skin soft incase of ingrown hairs. Just remember not to shave over the same area too often, and give yourself a few days inbetween each shave, especially when you just start. The razor burn should go away after awhile. Good luck =)
A: It's just razor burn sweetie!! NOTHING to worry about at all. Try using shaving cream. I actually sometimes put deodorant down there after I shave. It can help with the bumps and the itching.
Q: When I shave I use shaving cream that is sensitive for that area I shave with the grain but down on my lower vaginal lips there are small bumps u can see them but you can't feel them I wait a couple of weeks before shaving to let the area not become irrate I don't buy the fancy razors I get the ones for a $1/$2 Any suggestions...
Q: every time I shave down there it always gets itchy after a few hours how can I prevent this?!?
A: Do you use a shaving cream that is suitable for the area? When you shave, shave in the direction that the hair grows. After shaving using a moisturising cream that is suitable for the down below area. You can buy emollients from the pharmacy that can be used as a substitute for soap. The other option is not to shave. Don't use normal soaps, shower gels and bath gels. These will dry the skin and irritate it more. Use non perfumed soaps, soaps with the same pH level as our skin and baby washes should be fine too. If the skin itches, it may be a fungal problem. You can purchase antifungal creams to use on the genitals from the pharmacy.
A: How often are you shaving? Make sure you are using a razor designed for that area and plenty of shaving cream. Best to shave AFTER a shower or bath. Cut longer hairs BEFORE shaving. 1% hydrocortisone cream (over the counter) might help after shaving the area.
Q: I was just wondering if i should shave my pubic hair. Any answers would be appriciated. thanks
A: If you do decide to shave, take it slow and use a good razor! Take a warm bath or shower before as it will help loosen the hair follicles, making it easier to shave. Use a shaving cream or oil and start shaving in the same direction of the hair growth first, then shave in the opposite direction. Unfortunately shaving can cause ingrown hairs or redness, not all the time but sometimes, that's why a lot of woman prefer to wax these days. It's more of a personal decision whether to shave or not, good luck to you.
A: If you've never done it, try it out and see what style you think looks best.
Q: I get these big painful bumps on my bikini line every time I shave. I shave everywhere down there but the bikini line is the only place where I get bumps. They are kind of like big pimples because I can squeeze them and white puss comes out, but it really hurts to squeeze or even touch them.Even walking can be painful at times. Sometimes they bleed a little. I have been getting these bumps ever since I started shaving there at age 14. I am now 20. They seem to be a little worse than they used to be and I have a few ugly scars from past ones. My husband and myself would like to know how to treat this asap. If anyone has any advice on what this is or how to treat it I would really appreciate it! thanks!
A: Ok not a big issue... try a few different things...one soak before shaving.. a razor should only be used 3 times because it holds dead skin no matter how clean it looks which could cause a staph infection... next different underwear may help maybe none when you shave less irritation!!! try using the bikini bumps cream which helps alot! i recommend the mens nivea cream it works very fast. Use it for 3 days after shaving. I think it could be ur razor try sensitive and buy a big pack and when you shave follow the hair never go against the hair which will cause pimple like bumps in just that area. Try moisturizing before you shave for an hour a thick lotion or conditioner so its soft when you shave and dont shave hard be gentle it is a gentle area... GOOD LUCK TO YOU TWO WITH THIS
Q: I just thought about posting this question because I think it's a pain in the a** to shave all the time. Shaving could include anywhere you shave.
A: Never use to mind shaving my legs...but now that I'm getting sicker, I don't shave except once a month. People ask me why I don't wear shorts in the summertime, it's mainly because I don't shave my legs. But also because I don't have the balance, the strength, nor the stamina to shave my legs. I do have an electric razor, but having to use one of those things every couple of days gets old. If I don't show my legs, no one will wonder, so I wear pants or jeans all year round. My spouse understands when I don't get the razor out to shave though. But, I do miss the silky leg feeling after shaving. That's the only thing I miss. I definitely don't miss the stubbles and the burn and the nicks and blood....lol.
A: I am lucky, with my fair skin and red hair, I don't have a lot to shave off. I still hate it though! My leg hairs are really thick and coarse, and they do take a bit of extra effort with the shaver. If I leave it go too long..then the shaver clogs up, have to beat the proverbial out of it on the side of the shower, and then I start thinking of my ex-husband shaving his face every day...and bleurgh! Not very womanly at all! So I tend to use a hair removal creme. But funny enough, when the hairs start to grow back in the summer time especially, guess what I reach for in the shower? Yes, my Quattro for Women and my Gillette shave gel for women! Go figure!
Q: They are slightly raised an only painful if you touch them. I AM A VIRGIN. I've made out once, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE. What could they be? They don't ooze out anything and go away after a few days to a week. I got one, it disappeared, and now im noticing another one. They are actually near my upper, inner thigh. What could these be? Could it be because someone used my razor and then I did?
A: It could be ingrown hairs, the tend to happen around that area. Ways to prevent ingrown hairs: allow hair to be wet before shaving (approx 5 minutes), exfoliate the area with a gentle exfoliating body scrub, avoid shaving the same area multiple times in one shave, shave in the direction of hair growth, rinse the razor multiple times during the shave to prevent bacteria, use a gentle antibacterial soap externally after shaving.
Q: A couple days ago i shaved down there and was shaving fast and ever since then i had red bumps coming out and they were soer and last time i did it it was the same but when it grew out the red spots were gone am i doing it right
A: By the sounds of things, you are not doing it right. Like thatquietgirl writes, if you are going to shave, shave in the direction that the hair grows and either lather up some soap or get a shaving stick to use. Always use a clean new blade and do it slowly and gently. Better still - don't shave.
A: Shave with the grain rather than against it and use something like soap on the mound. Sounds like you're either giving yourself razor burn or ingrown hairs.
Q: I am 15 years old. And I have been noticing these bumps on my vagina. And when hair is getting ready to grow back , the bumps start itching. And when I shave they bleed . What is the cause of this ?
A: it could be razor rash from shaving or ingrown hairs and then when you shave it can cause them to be ripped open and bleed. as long as you haven't been sexually active I would skip shaving for a few weeks just to give it time to heal and if it's ingrown hairs for them to fix them selves
Q: Hi. I am a 20 year old female. Recently I shaved my pubic area. When the hair started growing back, it started itching a little, though that's not that odd. But, right on the baseline of my pubic hair, under my stomach, I have a tiny red bump. It's hard and it only hurts when I tough it. I'm almost positive it's not STD related because I was tested recently. Could it have been from shaving?
A: It is a ingrown hair i get them alot when i shave down there try a hot compress and let it get a head on it then pop it if that dont work u can goto ur doc or ur local hospital and have them look at it.
A: It is probably an ingrown hair, I get then when I shave my pubic area
