    Another advantage of pubic hair: it limits the friction between our intimate area and our sometimes tight clothes. Epilating them - whether with wax, razor or depilatory cream - can therefore cause intimate itching (pruritus). And if it is scratched, this itching can lead to a secondary bacterial infection with potentially serious consequences ...

    Are you waxing your bikini line with a razor? Be careful: ingrown hairs are never far away! Unsightly, ingrown hairs can become the site of inflammation and (again) we can witness the development of a bacterial superinfection with sometimes serious consequences.
