Embarrassing Health Problem: Pubic Hair Problem


If you opt for a quick shower, there are chances that you do not wash yourself thoroughly. Worse so, if your private parts are neglected. This gives rise to bacterial growth; some of these bacteria can cause discomfort. Today we are talking about one such bacterial growth: Trichomycosis axillaris.

What is trichomycosis axillaris?
Trichomycosis axillaris is a superficial bacterial colonization of the hair shafts in sweat gland–bearing areas, such as the armpits and the pubic area. (Via)

Basically, you will find white, orange, yellow substance over the hair, like a coating. But this is not a disease, there are no symptoms and it is curable. Trichomycosis axillaris is common with men than women.

Cause of Trichomycosis axillaris:

The bacterial growth is a result of sweat and moisture. Hence it is commonly found on your underarm hair and pubic hair. But since women shave these areas, trichomycosis axillaris is more common in men.

Treatment for Trichomycosis axillaris:
- Shaving that area.
- Washing the area with water and soap regularly.
- Powder can be applied to keep it dry.
- Antibiotic and gels are available.

Bottomline: Stay clean to avoid Trichomycosis axillaris. Besides, hygiene helps prevent other diseases as well.
