Posted on Wed, 14 Oct 2015
Question: One day while shaving fast it felt as if I slit two spots outside on the vaginal lips. After became bumps and swollen. Our apartment ran out of toilet paper but we had wipes the four days that we used the wipes it became a more burning to per and I noticed the labia was bright red and turn to touch. Soon the side of my leg got a soar also and a straight line of white bubbles near the soar. I now have the scabbed soars up near the pant line that have a few of the white bubbles near but it's in the spot I usually have my ingrown hairs and some of the bubbles have a black dot in them. I have pictures if there's a way to have you see them. I'm scared.
