Overcoming Pubic Skin That Is Accidentally Injured?
. Yesterday I cut my pubic hair and then I started cutting the scrotal area to shorten my pubic hair. Then accidentally cut the outer skin a little. I immediately washed the wound with warm water and then I applied the betadine. Do you need a follow-up? Can it cause infertility like this?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pubic skin in medical terms is also called the scrotum, and this skin is covered with hair to keep moisture and has a darker color than other body skin. The role of this skin in the reproductive system is to help regulate temperature so that the testes can work optimally in producing sperm.
If it is injured, which may often occur when someone shaves their pubic hair, this does not necessarily affect the skin's ability to perform its function. Minor injuries like the ones you mentioned are natural, and your initial response is not wrong. Over time these wounds will heal on their own and have no lasting impact.
However, if the wound is unlikely to be infected with bacteria and cause pus, lumps, or pain to appear, consult a doctor immediately for further treatment. That's all, hope it helps.
