Common "Pubic Itching" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Pubic Itching

An itchy pubic region might be due to a razor burn, allergy to personal hygiene products, pubic lice, scabies, eczema, psoriasis, candidiasis, or infection due to wet or tight underwear. Wearing clean and correct fitting inner wears, keeping the pubic area dry, shaving pubic hair after lubrication with gels or shaving creams, using hypoallergenic hygiene products, etc., are ways to prevent itching. Care must be taken not to scratch the itch.
