shaving pubic hair

Whatever you choose to do with your pubic is totally up to you. Shave it all off, if you wish. Let it all grow out and nourish it with some luxurious bush oil.  But medically speaking, there’s some good evidence pointing towards why you shouldn’t remove your hair down there at all. INFOR MATION NIGERIA bring to you in this piece that could happen to you when you shave your pubic hair.

ABSCESSES

Both shaving and waxing pubes can lead to abscesses on the genital area. What, you may ask, is an abscess? Basically, it’s like an ingrown hair, but on crack–it’s a confined pocket of pus that builds up within the tissues of the body and takes the form of a hard, red lump beneath the skin. It’s often pretty painful, and can either be treated with antibiotics or lancing it.
