Does shaving down there does cause
disease? I’m 16 and I sorta want to shave but I don't know how. I
am scared I might catch something like a virus, ‘cause when you
shave, your razor touches you armpits and legs. Is there any method I
can use that will not harm my body?
No, sweetie, shaving down there does
not, in and of itself, give you a disease. If you aren’t careful,
though, you could get an infection, so take our tips below to heart
before you pick up the razor.
- Don’t use a dull razor. It’s
actually way easier to shave the sensitive skin down there with a
fresh blade than an old one.
- Rusty razor? Toss it ASAP. If you can
see any rust on any part of your razor and blade, it’s time to get
rid of that sucker, pronto.
- Go slowly! Choose a time when you
won’t be rushed for shaving down there, and experiment with
different angles and positions.
- Use a shaving gel or lotion. Trust
us, soap is inadequate for shaving down there (and the combo of soap
+ razor isn’t fab for your skin, either). In the case of shaving
gel, more is more, so lather up!
- Don’t use anyone else’s razor.
It’s just not a good idea, ya know?
- If you cut yourself, clean the razor
and the area well and apply an antibiotic ointment.
If you’re still not sure about using
a razor down there, you could always try a hair removal cream
