My problem is I have irritation and small red dots all around the vaginal area. It is like razor burn. This happened a year ago when I used an electronic hair removal device in the pubic area. I got some sensitivity and redness, and I ignored it thinking it to be an irritation that gets to the skin after shaving. But it did not disappear. I used some disinfectants, creams, exfoliating and peeling, and continuous moisturizing, but no development whatsoever. There is no itching or anything, but I only have redness and irritation. Sometimes, I feel a burning sensation when I exfoliate or moisturize. I have attached a photo of the same issue.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You should not use any exfoliating agent in the pubic area when there is already contact dermatitis. It leads to more inflammation, erythema, and burning sensation.
Please send good quality clinical photograph and revert. Please mention what creams you have applied.

Thank you doctor,
I attached the photo. I still have the dots. However, I stopped using exfoliate a couple of months ago, but there is no improvement. The creams I use are Aveeno moisturizing lotion, Eucerin calming cream, and Bepanthen.

I have seen the attached photo (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
This is folliculitis and due to the past history of exfoliation, each follicle looks inflamed. I suggest you try using the following: Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines after their consent.
