When summer arrives, comes also the crucial question of the depilation of the jersey. Be careful, however: the absence of hair would promote irritation and infections in this area.
The depilation of the jersey for aesthetic purposes would not be without danger. On the contrary, it would pose a health risk. So should we be wary of a practice dictated by the abstract idea of a perfect body, glabrous and smooth? Should we give up clearing the hair, or just ask the question of the method to use?
The dangers of the depilation of the jersey
The hairs naturally present on certain areas of the body have a utility. They form a bulwark against bacteria and irritations. According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, hair removal would not be harmless and would pose a risk to our health.
indeed, wax or razor on the jersey area traumatizes the skin, which loses its protection and thus becomes more vulnerable to certain viruses. The depilation of the jersey facilitates irritations and infections, among other things, and promotes the contraction of STDs such as herpes.

Frequent irritation, a factor of infections
Emily Gibson, director of the Center for Health Research at Western University in Washington State, says hair removal is not at all the guarantee of better hygiene, perfect aesthetics, and even less of an increased sexual pleasure.
Whatever the means used to wax, wax, razor or depilatory cream, the skin suffers and irritates each time a little more. Emily Gibson has drawn sharp conclusions from her observation of patients who are adept at the depilation of the jersey: ” Pubic hair removal irritates and causes inflammation of the hair follicles, which leave wounds. Regular hair removal results in frequent irritation of the shaved or waxed area. Combined with the light and damp environment of the genitals, this creates an environment conducive to the multiplication of the worst pathogenic bacteria.
Hair removal, therefore, increases the risk of contracting infections and diseases (STD, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus B, etc.), especially in young people.
After hair removal, a problematic regrowth
The skin is exposed to risks during regrowth as well. In fact, ingrown hairs can cause infections, and if they are taken out, leave scars. Worse, these lesions, in turn, increase the risk of minor infections such as genital warts. Hence the importance of regular scrubs in this area to help ingrown hairs out.
Hair removal in men too
The depilation of the jersey is becoming more fashionable among men too. It is not without risk either: a study showed that 30 patients, including 24 men, carriers of the herpes virus, had caught him following pubic hair removal. Male hair removal therefore also promotes the risk of spreading genital herpes.
As a reminder :
The cause of herpes? The molluscum contagiosum that is is a very contagious virus. It results in burning sensations and tingling, difficulty in urination, and the appearance of vesicles. This virus is easily transmitted:
- in direct contact with the skin with another contaminated person;
- in contact with an infected washcloth or towel.
Will the dictatorship of the hair last?
If one wishes to wax the shirt, dermatologists advise rather favor the wax and to avoid the complete waxing. It is also necessary to follow strict hygiene rules: wear cotton underwear to avoid irritation, dry scrupulously and regularly change towels.
For this summer, opt for the depilation of the jersey with oriental wax made at home or at a beautician. Or better, enjoy a return of the trend of the hair and leave your underarms and your jersey to the natural!
