    I have boil after shaving my pubic area

    Please I have boil after shaving. Its not painful and does not itch. I’ve tried the wet hair before shaving method and antibiotics drugs and cream but it doesn’t stop. It’s embarrassing because it leaves spots on my private part. What should I do to stop experiencing such stuff?

    If you’re going to shave your pubic area, then do it in the bath or shower when your hair is wet. Then use a sharp razor and cut your hair in the direction of the hair follicles. If you cut against the hair growth, then you’re at a higher risk of developing boils.

    Unfortunately, there’s not a lot you can do to make a boil go away once it’s happened. However, there are ways to alleviate your symptoms. If your boils on your pubic area are becoming painful, apply warm compression to the affected area. This will help speed up the healing process. We understand that you can’t place warm compression inside your vagina, so this technique will only work on boils located in the surrounding area.

    If you have one inside your vagina, then try soaking in a warm bath. This might provide you with some temporary relief.

    Under no circumstance should you ever try to lance, pop, or squeeze your boil. Not only does this not work, but it can actually make you prone to a more serious infection. Also, trying to do this will spread the infection even further.

    If you leave your boil alone, it will more than likely go away within a week or two without you having to do anything. If you’re having intense pain, then any OTC pain medication may be able to help you get by.

    Don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to see a doctor. That’s their job and they see it more often than you think.
