"Nair burns"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Nov-18-12 AT 11:39 AM (CDST)
 
I have a question regarding using Nair below my vajaja around the but area...

I've done this many times in the past and sometimes if I leave it on too long it can cause a skin burn (I cant STAND hair). It's happened many many times in the past but I couldn't find any answers to my question...

Since finding out I have HSV (don't know which type yet) genitally, what are my changes of transmitting the virus if I have a reaction from using NAIR with no OB's and I'm on Meds if I have sex with an uninfected partner? Will you shed more in the area you shaved/used Nair?

I understand if he had a broken skin it's a high risk for him to catch it, which is probably how I contracted because I like to Nair/Shave a lot but I never worried about it up until now when it comes transmitting it to your partner if the positive HSV giver does the shaving.

I can't find an answer on this topic only for folks who shave and their partners are at risk catching if their partner is positive for the virus.

not sure if anyone can really answer my question.

Physical trauma to the area could trigger an outbreak or shedding. There's no way to put numbers on that, and I think most of the literature that talks about it is in reference to oral hsv1. Things like dental procedures, facial trauma or surgery, and sunburn can trigger oral shedding.

Don't leave it on too long. Ouch!

   Thanks Wendy I think I have a better understanding now.

Oh, and I base my areas w/ Vaseline first before I put the Nair on and only leave it on for a good minute. Careful not to get the Vaseline no where near my sensitive parts
