I would not shave your pubic hair ( it will only spread the infection - I hope you threw out the razor you used!!! ). I also would not apply any hair removal products either. Just take scissors and cut the hair close to the skin for now until everything has been treated and your skin in that area is back to normal.
aww :( but I sort of knew that was coming. So if the razor can spread the infection.....does that mean say, my hand can? because I have been washing my outer skin/pubic area with one hand and all the mucousy vaginal skin with a different hand for that same reason, and after a while of doing this I was wondering if it makes any difference at all. Your response leads me to believe that my theory is at least correct, but do you think it's useless and that it can spread to that area just by my underwear & everyday living anyway?
and does soap kill it? because if so then I might as well not wash this way anyway, right?
you are putting far too much thought into this! just wash like you usually would!
are you treating your hpv?
yeah maybe. (although I do have health anxiety maybe that's why)
I haven't begun treating them yet (except drastically changing the way I eat), just because I'm trying to figure out the least expensive method (flat broke), provided it will at least work on the ones I have now. My latest consideration is simply using I believe it was Apple Cider Vinegar, but I need to look into it more. Supposedly a lot of people claim it works even better than aldara (which costs an arm and three legs!). But I don't know anything about cryotherapy (as far as cost goes) and I'm having a hard time finding out without calling Planned Parenthood (and I can only call on Saturdays because of conflicting schedules, which I simply haven't gotten around to yet). Any suggestions?
i'll never be aldara's biggest fan because of the price alone. Plus most folks I know who used it ended up feeling worse down yonder than they were with just the warts from all the irritation :(
Check PP's website to get the email addy for your closest clinic and just email them. They will remove them very low cost. Personally I'd rather just go have them removed and go back a few times if needed than to apply irritating cream for several months on end myself.
thanks grace, you're a big help to all of us!
