Hi.......Dear user..,

welcome to HCM...,

Gone through your case...

Due to shaving of pubic cut off ...hyperfollicles of sebcious ducts..

Now these are infected.....

Hence our advise is don't shave the hairs at pubic point...

Only trimmering that area with sterile scissors......

Treatment for this ....

1) Thorough washing with salt and soap water ...(don't use antiseptic)

2) Tab Doxycycline 100 mg daily after lunch for 15 days...

3) Tab..Levocetrizine..5 mg daily night ...for 1 week...,

4) Fusibact cream daily night application...o.k goodluck...,

Welcome to healthcare magic.
The acne in your case is due to shaving which causes infection of the exposed should try to use an antiseptic solution during and after shaving and avoid applying anything on the just shaved skin .also practise good genital hygiene and hand washing, use disposable razor each time or use scissors can take oral antibiotics if it becomes severe, as per your doctors advice
