Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience..

I understand your concern.

Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from shaving.
Bacteria often enter through a small opening of a hair follicle.
Folliculitis is usually caused by staphylococcus aureus.

As far as HPV is concerned vaccination is very effective in preventive the HPV infection and genital warts.Also the effect of vaccination are long lasting.

However the vaccination may not be effective in women who are already exposed to HPV infection.But since you are not sexually active for 6 months you should not worry about HPV.
