Gynecologist or Dermatologist?
March 6, 2013 2:51 PM Subscribe
I used to get ingrown hairs in my pubic area that often became infected. I was able to remove the hairs, but the areas over-healed and left two noticeable and unsightly keloids. In general, my pubic area, when the hair is removed, has small bumps all over, sort of like raw chicken skin. Is there a way to get these bumps and the keloids removed? Do I need to talk to a dermatologist or a gynecologist?

I talked to my old gyno about this once, but he was weird and dismissive (don't worry, I'm looking for a new one!). I didn't know if dermatologists are used to dealing with skin problems below the belt or if they'd just refer me back to my gynecologist. Would a dermatologist be able to prevent me from getting ingrown hairs in the future as well? I've never been to a dermatologist before, so I'm pretty clueless.
