Waxing or shaving causes viral infections in your intimate areas

2nd April 2013

For the last few decades it's become increasingly popular to wax or shave the intimate pubic areas.

Just like other areas of the body, people now prefer to be completely hair free, in particular women. Sometimes, due to the embarrassment of getting treatment, people choose to wax and shave their most intimate areas at home. However, as with any home treatments there comes a risk.

The risks that waxing and shaving accompany vary in severity, ranging from cutting the skin, ingrowing hairs to the more extreme such as contracting Molluscum Contagiousm. Don't know how to pronounce it, let alone know what it is?

Molluscum Contagiousm is a pox virus that commonly occurs in children and people with low immune systems, but it can also be passed on during sexual activity. This is because it occurs through scratches, ingrowing hairs and scars. This is why the experts here at sk:n recommend you find another solution to your hair removal needs.
