I started shaving my vagina area at a young age and I've gotteb ingrown hairs and razor bumps from it. But I didn't care much about it back then, but now at 18 I still have some scars. I don't shave there anymore in fear of getting more razor bumps. But how could I get rid or even fade some of the marks? They're really embarrassing now since I want to wear bikinis and now that I have a boyfriend.
Also, what's better to remove hair there without having to suffer razor bumps or ingrown hairs? I'm african american and I heard ingrown hairs are more common in us, I guess since the hair is thick and curly.Any tips or advise would be great, Thank you!
Hi! If you were my patient, I would refer you to a dermatologist with a good esthetician who could work on the scars with laser. I would definitely recommend someone with experience with African American patients, too.. It is possible that you have a condition called hidradenitis in which the sweat and oil glands frequently become infected and cause scarring. Typically the underarms and groin areas are involved. A dermatologist/esthetician combo is the way to go! Good luck! Dr B
