In growing hair on vagina

Lately i have been experiencing problems with in-growing hair on my vagina. The hair is trapped in, and then proceeds to form a boil like rash.
I shave on regular basis to avoid this but it seems taht it has not helped, because the hair grows inward before it starts showing on the skin surface.
Help!!! what can i do?
I had even gone for all sorts of tests including for the HIV virus, and tests have returned negative.

Shaving actually predisposes to ingrown hairs. Try going to a professional or stop shaving for a while.

Hi Girl
In case you're wondering if you have some sort of disease because you're experiencing ingrown hairs, you don't.

In grown hairs are caused by shaving or waxing and are pretty much expected if you're doing any shaving or waxing down there.

I get them all the time - usually I can squeeze the skin and the ingrown hairs come out. Maybe you should start going to a professional or swop therapists if you are getting any waxing done?
