could shaving cause an ob?

Ok, don't know how else to put this, but could shaving "down there" cause an outbreak? I would like to shave my entire area around and ON my vagina(I normally just shave the top part). I'm afraid it will cause an ob. Any advice???

mmm, it depends irritation can cause a ob, and if u have never shaved it entirely then u really dont know if its going to be ok with it being bald.

but i doubt it will cause a ob.

Combined with stress, I'm certain this was the trigger for my outbreak....the only one that i've noticed to date. Which is weird, because I have shaved often before :-/ my guy isn't going to like the fuzzy much LOL

Ugh, that may explain the ob I think I am about to have. So much to learn about this darn condition. My dh is indifferent to my shaving (likes it alot but will be fine). I on the other hand really like it! Bummer!

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to get rid of hair without shaving or causing an outbreak? I hate having it there, I feel like it makes it itch more and harder to figure out what is going on down there. I was thinking about electrolysis but that's not really in my budget anytime soon!

shavingb actually helps me keep them at bay, i can see if i have an OB alot easier, then i just take 3 lysine instead of 2 and apply the power to myself topically (mixed with water)

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.

      Both a dermatologist and infectious disease doctor prescribed him HSV medicine. Why would they do that if this isnt "what herpes really does"?
