WOMEN WHO WAX OR SHAVE BIKINI LINES ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET SKIN INFECTIONS
French researchers have a warning for women: 'Brazilians' and other pubic hair removal methods may increase the risk of a highly contagious viral skin infection.
A ‘micro trauma’ caused by waxing and shaving might aid the spread of an infection that can be easily spread through skin-to-skin contact with someone who is infected.
The virus is called Molluscum contagiosum, and it causes small flat circular skin lesions, which may be flesh colored, white, translucent or yellow.
The infection is spread by someone coming into direct contact with a lesion (in adults this is often sexual contact) but it may also be spread by contact with contaminated objects such as towels, clothing or toys.
