With much trepidation, I did trim them, and there has been no incidences of infections since, though I have the med in the refridgerator, just in case.

What is the name of those whiskers, and, given that he is ordinarily not going outside, at all, are there any dangers in trimming them down. I even wonder if I should have the vet remove them???

#1: NO

#2: NO

Any vet that is sane would never do it.
