Hello ei have a question about red spots that appear when I let my pubic hair grow...if I keep the hair very short they do not appear but once I leave it for a week they appear and can be a little itchy...what could be the reason for this?? I have had laser hair removal and this didn't happen until after my session so I stopped going but it's been over 6 months now and the rash still appears when the hair grows back...

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

This is likely due to the hair follicle inflammation.

mysticdoc :

Bacterial infection is the common cause.

mysticdoc :

Allergic reaction to the personal hygiene products also can cause this.

mysticdoc :

You can wash the area with chlorhexidine bodyash daily which should help.

mysticdoc :

Topical hydrocortisone ointment daily also can be applied to avoid the itching.

Customer: Can I get these over the counter?? Is it here a specific one I should ask for?
mysticdoc :

yes they are over the counter.

mysticdoc :

Also avoid any dry skin.

mysticdoc :

Moisturizer like aloe will be good.

mysticdoc :

Dry skin increases the risk of infection.
