Just a very quick recap:

About a month ago, I shaved/clipped my man zone hair. A few days later, a small red bump appeared on the bottom of the shaft on my penis. I didn't itch, slightly sensative but the secondary symptoms were minimal. I used some neosporin, which didn't do anything and then some cortozone, which helped with the sensativity.

Flash forward to today when I saw my dermatologist. He didn't seem too concerned but did prescribe some clobetasol propionate cream. He said that after about two weeks if the bump doesn't go away, he suggested getting it lanced off. I'm already circumcized, so I'm not wild about this option. Just kidding. I know it wouldn't be a big deal.

Perhaps next time I want to "trim the hedges," I should use scissors instead of my hair clippers? Smaller chance to nick myself again.

Anyone that wants to chime in, please feel free.

Use clippers with a guard on them so you leave a little hair. You're less likely to get ingrown hairs that way. Scissors aren't a great idea for that area. You're more likely to cut yourself with them.

Told my husband about this and the first mistake he said was using clippers. did your pubic area need that much shaving that you needed clippers? My husband uses a regular disposable razor once a month down there. Never had any issues. Don't let it get so bushy next time and you won't need clippers, just a simple razor. Also no to the scissors. The pubic area is a sensitive area and you should never use clippers or scissors down there. Why not get it waxed?
