Pubic hair area itching
Why does my pubic hair itch after menopause, and how can I get some relief
Dry skin and pubic lice are two causes of itching in the pubic hair area. For dry skin, stop using soap and just use clean water. For lice, examine the hair very carefully looking for nits on the hair shaft. Check with your gynecologist or dermatologist to be sure of the diagnosis and to receive the correct treatment.
