In growing hair on vagina
Lately i have been experiencing problems with in-growing hair on my vagina. The hair is trapped in, and then proceeds to form a boil like rash.
I shave on regular basis to avoid this but it seems taht it has not helped, because the hair grows inward before it starts showing on the skin surface.
Help!!! what can i do?
I had even gone for all sorts of tests including for the HIV virus, and tests have returned negative.

Shaving actually predisposes to ingrown hairs. Try going to a professional or stop shaving for a while.
