Hi,
I had a sore in my pubic region following laser hair removal the week before.
I have some pictures and I'd like an opinion on it as I'm worried it's something else.

Hi, did that work?

It has completely healed now. It only lasted afee days. I had irritated the area with exfoliating as I forgot stupidly it was there when in the shower

This was s day later before it healed

Thanks for the reply.

The lesion seems to have healed now, which is a sign that it was a simple abrasion or burn that can occur after laser treatment. Pubic area folds have thinner skin as compared to other areas of the pubic region, so often laser can burn through the dermal layer easily causing such a sore to form.

Now, that it has healed you do not need to concern yourself about it. It will not come back.

Let me know if you have further questions.
