Small Bumps Around Pubic Hair After Shaving?
I am 22 years old. About two weeks ago I shaving my pubic hair area for the first time. I use a new razor, before I do shaving I exfoliate my pubic hair with a body scrub then I wash it with warm water and when I do shaving I use a facial milk cleanser as a shave cream. After shaving for the first time, my miss v area is fine. Because pubic hair is very easy to grow then a few days later about 5 days later I did shaving again and I used the razor I used yesterday and didn’t wash my pubic area with warm water and did exfoliation, I just did shaving with a milk cleanser. A few days later there was a small pimple with a white patch above it on the lower labia majora and a small pimple-like bump but no white spot. Both do not cause discomfort, when I move like walking or sleeping etc I don’t feel pain or anything. It’s just that when I touch the two bumps it feels a little sore like when I touch a pimple on my face. Is it a furuncle or folliculitis? And can the follicular form be a small lump without the white part on it?
Hi Isha Aprilia,
Shaving (shaving) the hair around the pubic does require special attention, this is because the skin area in this area is very sensitive. There are several things you need to pay attention to when doing shaving:
change the razor frequently to avoid the risk of scratching, use a special moisturizing cream to protect your skin, avoid shaving in the opposite direction of hair growth, the area that has been shaved has the potential to cause itching, but avoid scratching to avoid injury. Folliculitis is an inflammation of the follicle (hair root sheath) due to a staphylococcal bacterial infection. This condition is most often caused by shaving, excessive friction with coarse clothing, or blockage due to excessive sweating. while a furuncle is a blockage of a hair follicle with surrounding tissue, this condition is commonly referred to as a boil. However, to answer your question, we need to do an in-person inspection.
If you feel uncomfortable with your condition, you can apply a warm compress on the inflamed area. You can also see a doctor directly for examination and appropriate treatment,
