major skin problems after shaving pubic region

I don't really want to go to a doctor because I don't know what to tell them but here is what happened. Note: I have not have sex in the last 6 months so I am sure its not a STD. Alright I had a ich where the thigh connects to the lower body in between my penis. So I shaved that areas along with hair on my testicals. Its been a couple weeks and I have a big rash about 2 inches by 4 inches on my left inner thigh by my testicles that looks red/dark red and my testicles have little rough spots on them from growing in hair cutting the skin and rubbing against the skin. I more worried about that rash on my thighs then any thing else. The skin between my testicles and my leg ich alot to the point where I scratch it and it gets raw. Can any tell me what I need to take or do to solve this problem?

Re: major skin problems after shaving pubic region

once you start shaving and then stop the hair grows back and is VERY itchy... try baby powder, that should keep the area dry and help releive the itch

Re: major skin problems after shaving pubic region

The new hair coming out can be like tiny bristle brushes which can irritate the skin on your inner thigh by rubbing and scraping. I suppose that might be what is happening. Wearing briefs might help. Applying an antiboitic ointment to help the area heal might be a good idea. The rash might also be a fungal infection that you can treat with over the counter antifungals. If things don't get better as the hair grows out (which can itch quite a bit), then see a doctor.

Just thinging about your irritation problem and yes it most likely is the new hairs coming in wear boxes briefs, they will keep "things" in place and cover the area of new hair growth and still try the powder in the briefs to stop and dampness from sweating.
