Hello!

Welcome on Healthcaremagic!

Regarding your concern, I would recommend using a local antiseptic lotion on that area for a couple of days, in order to avoid infection.
The hair will grow up spontaneously. There is nothing to worry about!
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best wishes, Dr. Aida
