Question: Problem of having more hair

 madonbeauty - Tue Dec 30, 2008 7:10 am

Hello doctor, this is Geetha iam an indian 30 yrs old. My problem is having more pubic hair. before marriage i use to shave my pubic hair. I got married at the age of 22 my husband not allowing me to remove hair from my pubic area and from armpit. Ofcourse he like that hair very much, now you can imagine how much hair will be there. Nowadays iam feeling more warm and sweating in that area. my question is wheather this habit leads to any problem or not. i need your advice.

User avatar Hello,
There is no medical reason to shave and no health benefit other than some women feel armpit (axillary) hair traps bacteria a little more, resulting in more underarm odor. Use of a deodorant and daily bathing can help that problem, however. It is a personal decision without particular benefit.

Best wishes.
