Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I would be happy to assist you.
What area did you cut? Around the outside or inner lips?
It was outside, it was lover part didn't realize I had skin with the hair until I closed the scissors.
Have you looked with a mirror to see if there is missing skin or only a cut?
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.
Any pain or swelling?
How long ago did you cut yourself?
this morning, just checked again with gauze and didn't see any spot. just the dried blood.
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.
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.
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...
May I address any additional questions or concerns for you?
I'm still here if you have additional questions. If none, please accept/rate my answer. Thank you.
