I have severe razor bumps and want to get rid of them ASAP. When I first started shaving I did not know the proper way to do it and scars where left over the years and razor bumps and sometimes ingrown hairs. I got tested for herpes because that is what I thought it was after a while but the test came back negative. I started waxing and she told me to exfoliate down there twice a week. I have done that and still no results. I do not even want to get waxed because it is very embarrassing having to show an ugly scared vagina. Please help.

I saw the picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is very common because of the allergy secondary to shaving. Also happens after waxing. Anyways, try to avoid shaving as much as possible. If it is troubling you a lot, then you can go for laser permanent hair removal. For now I am prescribing you few creams. Start using it. Within a month it will decrease. We will take a follow up after a month and according to the response we will decide the further treatment plan.
Shaving, waxing.Probable diagnosis:
Acneiform eruption/keratosis pilaris.Treatment plan:
RETINO A 0.025 cream apply in the morning after bath.
Deriva BPO gel apply at night and wash after 1 hour.
Tablet Azithromycin 500 mg one tablet once a day after meal for 3 consecutive days in a week for 4 weeks.
Aquasoft cream: Apply twice a day.
