Waxing, Shaving, and Wearing Tight Clothing can leave you Uncomfortable

Date posted: July 1, 2013

Bikini line-waxing, shaving, and wearing tight clothing can cause your skin to get irritated.  Developing a rash or embarrassing bumps next to your vagina can be quite bothersome.  What’s even more agitating is when you find yourself unable to clear up the problem.

Many women don’t realize that most often when they have bumps left behind from waxing or shaving that it tends to be related to an infected hair follicle, where a condition known as Foliccuiltis occurs.

No need for embarrassment however, follicultis is a very common condition, which can be treated with antibiotics.  Should any scaring occur from follicultis there are options for vaginal rejuvenation procedures to help you regain your soft flawless skin.

What is Folliculitis?

Folliculitis occurs when hair follicles become infected, often with Staphylococcus aureus or other bacteria. There are many variations of folliculitis, including those known as hot tub folliculitis and barber’s itch. Severe infections can cause permanent hair loss and scarring, and even mild folliculitis can be uncomfortable and embarrassing.

The infection usually appears as small, white-headed pimples around one or more hair follicles — the tiny pockets from which each hair grows. Most cases of folliculitis are superficial, and they may itch, but on occasion they’re painful too. Superficial folliculitis often clears by itself in a few days, but deep or recurring folliculitis may need medical treatment.

What Causes Folliculitis?

Folliculitis is caused by an infection of the hair follicles by bacteria, viruses or fungi. The most common cause of folliculitis is Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

Follicles are densest on your scalp, but they occur everywhere on your body except your palms, soles and mucous membranes, such as your lips. If follicles become damaged, they become susceptible to invasion.

The most common causes of follicle damage include:
