Are down-there diseases caused by shaving?


 
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 or waxing.
