Itchy vag after shaving

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy vag after shaving

itchy

Just so all you ladies know, you aren't supposed to shave your vag after 37 weeks as shaving can cause little cuts where bacteria can grow. That's what my prenatal class leader told us, anyhow!
But, if my memory serves me right its was two days ago after I shaved (w/o using shaving cream, it was my 1st time shaving) I felt discomfort. At first I thought it was just due to it not being a close cut but that's not what was bothering me. It was the lips to my vagina. It had this odor and I was sure that it wasn't there before, not only is there pain and discomfort, I keep getting this feeling as if somethings moving around in me. That or I'm just nervous of what could be happening to me.
I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
here i go....so for the last 6 months i have had itchy eyelids...my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Now the fissures are longer, redder, whiteish inner appearance and they've multiplied. Theyre in almost every fold of my vag. Im still itchy red and swollen.. it hurts so bad to pee and they arent getting better.. help! Any advice would be appreciated. Doe this sound like herpes or a severe severe yeast infection caused by imbalance in my downtown region? Ive had no other herpes like symptoms. They were open already. No blisters that ruptured. No clusters. No fever. No chills. Etc..
Occasionally my vagina area will have one or two red and itchy pimples or blisters. When i walk, bath or sit once i touch it, it will be very pain and itchy until i can't stand it but when i apply "mopiko" which is a term for a chinese cream that soothe pain and itchiness i feel better. Sometime it get bigger and painful even when i bath and wash it, it sore and pain until i do not dare to touch it.
a few days later. After my period I had some burning a.d yeast like symptoms so I went to obgyn. She did cultures and found nothing unusual. I had some foul smelling discharge and was treated for bv. Several days later Dr called and said I had beta strep and prescribed levaquin. I took the med and felt better. Shortly after I started feeling irritation again. I went to Dr 2x and ER in a week thinking I had herpes as I was googling my symptoms and freaking out.
most of these bumps that look like pimples are just razor bumps. they come after shaving and go away after a few days. put aloe lotion on them and they will most likely go away. but if you have a bump and it is red, itchy, and you did not shave you might need to go get checked out.
lol I'll post again on this subject next month and see if not shaving makes any immediate difference! Did you get these after you waxed too?
the first symptom is burning and itching and usually you feel it after sex or after shaving. after few days of infection there will be a white discharge.
go to doctor asap and relax it may be a rash from friction or shaving think did u do anything differently lately in that particular area of your body
This I think is very common, I as well have the "bumps" from time to time. And yes, they are pinful, and no mine are not an STD. I think it's just a common area to get cysts.
I have no type of discharge, and it only itches after i shave. I don't know if it's because i'm shaving with a razor or not. But i also have two open cuts near my whole. I am bisexual and i have a girlfriend. She either gives me oral sex, fingers me, or i masterbate with a brush. I need help as soon as possible. I am fifteen.
For the last week or so my vagina has been sore after me and my boyfriend have sexs. I just figured that I was tight from doing keagles all the time but it still hurts after sex or when we initiate sex later again the same night.Do you know why thsi is is? Also, my vagina has been itching badly the last couple of days and Ive been having discharge that looks like cottage cheese but has no distinctive smell.
im in a long term relationship and got tested for STD's and nothing...but after i have sex i burn for a while after..its been a year and 3 months since i remember having sex that felt normal and ive recently had another bout of thrush which ive just finished treatment for but im still worried the problem will still be there. I hope one day us ladies find an answer to all of our problems!
The signs started about 10 days ago when I felt the skin around my rectal area was itchy. After a few days the itch went to my vaginal area. There are no redness or anything visible abnormality with those areas when I tried to check it but it itches like crazy! I tried anti-fungal cream but it didn't do anything. I researched through the internet and found out vaginal itching could be caused by candida albicans so I searched for its treatment.
When I first experienced these tears, I had just switched to a new fancy shaving cream and thought for sure I was just allergic to that. But a few months after throwing the cream out, I got more tears. They seemed to come & go quickly but while they lasted, they were very painful (almost felt like a paper cut to my vagina) and occasionally bleed, and sometimes come with some swelling down there. The cuts usually ran along where my pubic hair ends at the crease by my vulva.
Mine usualy shows when i am sexualy active after a time of not being active, this time it came up and i have not been sexualy active and has been swollen now for 4wk and thort it best to have it checked. Has any of you been the same? I am gay so its definatly nothing a guy is causing to happen. Any advise would be appreciated.
After thinking my husband had given me an STD and kicking him out for a night (my bad), my ob/gyn told me that the 3 swollen, painful-to-the-touch bumps I have, 2 on either sides of my outer labia, and one in the crease right where my leg joins my genital area are sebaceous cysts. I too got them right before my period started and about a week after shaving.
She said She thinks that i scratch myself n It got infected after shaving, She tested me anyways an It was Nothing (herpies was negative) But i have just recently had sex w some1 (a friend) who i thought went n put a condom on, But found out rite after he didnt. I know i should've checked. Now i have a bump on the outside of my vagina, It hurts when i was, It feels like a hair is being pulled But i am also sore on my clitoral area which i think is from the infection n scratching.
and especially after ive finished shaving, i get bumps and my vagina just looks so weird and dirty.... but the insides are the same color as my lips...its the part that touches the thighs when i close my legs...it looks like i dont clean it! oh btw im 17 years old im a virgin! and a girls vagina is supposed to look pretty and smooth and nice and mines doesnt! im just so worried abt showing a partner or a doctor and what they will think of me...
Well, there is a lot of women suffering from these little painful, uncomfortable things. I usually get them after shaving the area, it is like the skin gets irritated by the razor and it feels like a rash before they show. I do have very sensitive skin, can not use anything down there that contains alcohol or perfumes. So liquid soap and vitamin E lotion helps.
I was EXTREMELY itchy. From then on after sex (no condom till he is about to ***) being itchy etc started agen then because I couldnt have sex for a week or two after because it was to painful it woudl die down then we woudl have sex and it would all start again. My boyfriend is worried its herpes, I think maybe it is his lube but I have no clue what it is ?!?
The only thing that seem to work is when I have a asthma attack I end up in the hospital I'm place on steriods and by the time I come off of steriods after a week of being on them. the eczema is completely clear up. It' is when the steriods are out of my system that the skin problem is back. I'm noticeing this is a big problem and the physician lack the ability to dignosis it or treate it . We need help it is a disabling condition when it takes total control of your life. ....
I used monistat 1 to get rid of a yeast infection 2 months ago.... and the yeast is now gone apparentally... but i have this horrible burning almost itchy feelling in the whole area. It doesn't hurt to have sex or to touch... its just a sensation as you said that gets worse as the day goes on!!
YES, I recall noticing the first cuts after I started to shave again...I have been shaving for years..but it was only in the last year, that I noticed a recurrence of these cuts (also around my menstrual cycle). I've had cuts even when I'm not sexually active. SO it sounds like there are multitudes of factors that could contribute to these 'cuts': fragrance pads/tampons/tissue, abrasive shaving, etc. I will look into the same recommendations to sooth the skin and make it more elastic.
I know that my legs get really itchy from shaving, so after I shave I put baby oil on them. You might try using baby oil to moisturize the area.
I actually know when it is coming on because I start to get very sensitive, then the itch starts, then my period begins a couple days later, then the itch goes away about two days after my period begins. Even after my period ends, I am still left extremely sensitive. Even hurts to wash and forget about intercourse, it's extremely painful. Vagisil does help with the itch, so I use that, but I can't stand knowing what is causing this.
