Scary number of groomers suffering hair-removal injuries

In fact, an online survey of USA adults between the ages of 18-64 conducted by urologists from the University of California, San Francisco and their colleagues revealed that 76% of those men and women admitted to shaving, waxing or otherwise maintaining the hair in their pubic areas.

The research, say the authors, was prompted by an analysis of the type of genitourinary system problems that landed people in the emergency room.

Benjamin Breyer, a urologist at the University of California, San Francisco and co-author of the study said what surprised them was the frequency with which people turned up with "injuries relating to grooming".

JAMA' study used a web-based survey of USA adults that was conducted in January 2014. Among the questions, participants were asked the age at which they began grooming their pubic hair, how hairy they thought they were, and whether they had ever sustained injuries through grooming.

Grooming frequency and degree of grooming (i.e. removing all pubic hair) were the main, independent risk factors for injury found in the JAMA study. About a quarter of them reported injuries related to grooming. Shaving was the most common method, with almost three-quarters of participants using some sort of razor.

It may seem like no big thing, but 1.4 percent of people reported seeking medical attention because of these pube-related afflictions.

Hairier men - or at least, those who perceived themselves as hairier - also had a higher risk of injury.

The most common injuries reported were laceration, burn and rashes, with the most common areas of grooming-related injury for men being the scrotum (67.2%); penis (34.8%); and pubis (28.9%).

Apply soap or shaving cream if using razor: You might feel the need to clean your privates in a hurry but get a nice lather going to avoid injuries.

But, Beyer notes, it is hard to say which method is the most hazardous.

Researchers found that people who remove all their pubic hair multiple times throughout their lifetime are much more likely to experience injuries.

However, women who waxed had a decreased risk of high-frequency injury.

A similar trend was reported for women who removed all pubic hair 11 times or more compared with those who did not, with injuries (adjusted OR = 2.21; P .001) and high-frequency injuries (adjusted OR = 2.98; P .001) reported more frequently in the former group.

"People groom their pubic hair for different reasons, including sexual appeal, oral sex, partner preference, or routine care and hygiene", write the authors in JAMA Dermatology.
