Does anyone else get really bad ingrown hairs in their pubic area? I get HORRIBLE ingrown hairs every time I shave and they honestly pretty out of control. They swell up and hurt pretty bad. I’ve switched to a trimmer and that seems to help but I do prefer shaving – it’s just not worth it. I’ve tried every cream, lotion, etc out there.
When I was younger and this happened I went to my gyno because I thought it was a cyst and she essentially just drained it – now I have a permanent scar and to be honest – it still swells up sometimes. They go in cycles of swelling up and then seemingly “going away” but they eventually come back. I feel like its not worth it to go to the doctor if they can’t really do anything about it and its just going to continue to be painful, but it’s incredibly frustrating.
If anyone has any advice, experience, etc. please share! Open to anything at this point.
