Thank you for asking.
Shaving pubic hair is actually not a dangerous activity. What often causes complaints is the improper way of shaving, for example using a dirty razor or using certain chemicals, and also personal hygiene that is not properly maintained after shaving the pubic hair. This is what can trigger new complaints, namely itching and rashes.
The cause of itching and swelling around the genitals as you are experiencing may come from folliculitis. Ordinary people often call this with boils. Folliculitis occurs when bacteria (generally the type Staphylococcus aureus) infects the hair roots, causing inflammation. This inflammation will cause a bump that is often itchy, painful, and has a whitish peak due to the presence of pus in it. If not treated properly, folliculitis can reappear in other nearby areas.
In addition to folliculitis, you may also experience bumps and itching due to tinea cruris (fungus), cutaneous candidiasis, scabies (scabies), contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with allergenic or irritating substances), drug eruptions, and so on. If you have had risky sexual activity, it may also appear that bumps and itching are a manifestation of sexually transmitted infections, for example molluscum contagiosum, genital warts, genital herpes, and so on.
Our advice, considering that the complaint has been going on for 2 weeks, you should check with your doctor. That way, it can be established the right diagnosis and appropriate treatment to overcome it. If it is caused by folliculitis, doctors can give antibiotics and several other drugs.
Improve the cleanliness of your intimate organs to avoid inflammation in the genitals which often triggers itching and bumps. Shave your pubic hair using clean tools, not in contact with other people, and also not using harmful chemicals. In addition, be diligent in cleaning your genitals after every time you pee and after having sex. Avoid casual sex and also avoid applying anything to the bumps and itching on your genitals.
Hope this helps ..
