Accidently cut vagina while trimming pubic hair, what can I

This answer was rated:

Accidently cut vagina while trimming pubic hair, what can I do if it's still spotting?

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

Hello, I would be happy to assist you.

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

What area did you cut? Around the outside or inner lips?

Customer:

It was outside, it was lover part didn't realize I had skin with the hair until I closed the scissors.


 

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

Have you looked with a mirror to see if there is missing skin or only a cut?

Customer:

lover=lower


I checked but can't see where the cut is. If I dab the area I believe it cut I will see some blood, not a lot. Like spotting.

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

Any pain or swelling?

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

How long ago did you cut yourself?

Customer:

this morning, just checked again with gauze and didn't see any spot. just the dried blood.


 

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

Oh...ok. I was thinking it had been a while. Don't wipe away the dried blood as this can contain proteins and other substances that promote clotting and prevent further bleeding.

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

Shower daily so that it doesn't become infected. If you develop pain and swelling (mild discomfort will be normal for the next few days), visit your doctor for antibiotics.

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

I recommend using a trimmer. I can direct you to one on Amazon, but I'm not certain if you can obtain it from your location. It trims hair neatly, without shaving. One moment please...

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

May I address any additional questions or concerns for you?

Monika Hearne, M.D. :

I'm still here if you have additional questions. If none, please accept/rate my answer. Thank you.
