I saw this topic on Yahoo news, the title itself is intriguing “Beware of Brazilian”, and so I had to check it out right away. It says in the article that according to the French doctors those pubic hair removal techniques such as; waxing, trimming, shaving and plucking can get us infected with a pox virus called Molluscum contageosun or MVC.
This MVC is like a painless nodule that appears on your skin and may disappear after a month or few, that is if you are healthy. It can also spread through different parts of the body so basically the mode of infection for this one is likely to be skin-skin contact, and it is also considered as STD.
You know what my reaction to this news? It’s like WTF! I really don’t wax down under because I’m afraid it hurts so I just trim or shave it and it has been said that 70% of those who use shaving techniques is prone to infection because they can traumatize or irritate the skin. So what am I going to do with mine huh? Just let it grow until it becomes a thick bush and I can’t even get a laser hair removal because it’s pretty much expensive. This is going to be a problem for me.
