Docs warn of bald beaver health risk
HAIRY muffs are set to make a comeback.
A smooth downstairs has for years been in Vogue for the modern woman, but now docs are warning that being bare down there can be dangerous.
Boils, infected follicles and even HERPES are being linked to waxing and shaving and experts are calling for it to be BANNED.
Dr Emily Gibson, Head of Student Health at Washington University in America, said: “Pubic hair removal naturally irritates and inflames hair follicles – leaving microscopic open wounds.
“When combined with the warm, moist environment of the genitals, it becomes a happy culture for some of the nastiest bacteria.”
Former TOWIE babe Amy Childs made the “vajazzle” – where jewels are put on the pubic area after waxing – a trend across the UK.
Nina Goad from the British Association of Dermatologists said: “Any break in the skin could increase the risk of bacterial infections, but the risk is minimal.”
