4 Bumps

I shaved down there.. TMI.. PART 2 ....HELP!!!!!! adult content

So I shaved down there and got some REALLY wicked bad ingrown hairs. I wrote yesterday and alot of ladies wrote back giving me advice. So today when I got home from work I took a bath and looked down there.. instead of pimple looking things like usual its just red inflamed skin along with 4 white flat craters!! It almost looks like I popped a blister or something?!?!
Ive researched everything and theres nothing to pop and theres a few hairs on the outside. I tried to pull one of the and its like white hot pain just touching it!! It feels like its on fire!! :-O

Has anyone ever had this before?!?!?!

Ive been putting neosporin on it.. which starts to burn after a while. And Im walking around like a cowboy! But Ill probably go to urgent care in the AM if its not any better!

  • I do think that we advised you to see a Doctor,right? Since you are pregnant, NOW is NOT the time to have infected sores there. WOW> Good luck.

  • You probably just got razor burn. Instead of a cream, if you have just plain cornstarch, or an unscented powder, try putting that on it. You might get a scab in a day or 2

  • I would get tested for genital herpes ( just in case) But shave in the direction of your hair growth. Then after you get out of the bath/bathtub put deoterant on the area you shaved. Sounds silly but it will work!

  • And don't worry I am not accusing you of having it it's just better to be safe than sorry

  • I doubt its warts. Your just not used to shaving - really, so I would suggest (This works for me) after your done shaving smooth conditioner over the area. It will close the pores. Should make it less itchy - redness will go away - works for me. You'll be ok

  • Ouch, I'd go to the could be an infection if it burns. I shave with hair conditioner, it works really good.

  • Don't worry I did the samething while I was PG wit all 3 of my kids cuz I couldnt stand the Hair. I didn't want no clips catching my hair but also I didnt feel rite when my kids were born to face all that hair. Never more to say that It was HOT weather that really got me to do that cuz I would also shave my underarms & legs. Yea, Deodorant works but also light baby powder by Johnson & Johnson wit a Panty liner. My OBGYN's wife told me that one.. Now that I got older, I would say from the age of 26 yrs old to now that I'm 33, I would wax instead of shaving.

  • I don't want to scare you, but my sister just had something kindof like that down there and it ended up being staff infection. She's 6 months pregnant and on lovanox (I think that's what it's called) and they sent her to the hospital for surgery immediately

  • If you don't shave it on a regular basis this is what happens. The skin in that ares is extra sensitive. I keep myself groomed year round...landing strip style... and if I shave a fresh area or narrow the strip I will get those bumps. I suggest shaving with a fresh razor..never a dull one, and using soap instead of shaving cream or gel to minimize irritation.

    Use a warm washclothe at night to help draw the hairs out. It will take 2-3 days

  • You think when you were shaving you might have gotten skin. That would be my only thought on having craters down there.
