Just when she gets her period? Do you think maybe she thinks that's less messy or something? I've never heard of this.
I started shaving my legs when I was like, ten or something ridiculous like that. I did it every day. Can't do that now. I'm 26 and it I shave my legs every day, they look GROSS. Serious razor burn. I only shave the thighs (that hair is fine and thin and not very visible in the winter) like, once a month. The bottom every other or every three days, something like that.
Va jay jay? A little upkeep, not much. Bikini line is taken care of and then some trimming if needed, whatever. I think I used to shave it all off when I was sixteen or so, but I didn't have sex until I was 18, so I don't know why I was doing that at all. I also KNEW I wasn't going to be having sex any time soon. I didn't want to, didn't plan on it, etc. Just did that for no reason I guess?
Now if I were to do that, same case as my legs, serious razor burn that's far less attractive to me than pubes.
It DOES itch when it grows back, yeah, that happens to me. That's another reason why I shave what I feel I need to and leave the rest.
You thought when you heard that about the girls with STDs were more likely to get them if they shaved their junk? I just thought "wow, a lot of sexually active women shave their junk." I don't know, everyone is different, I can totally see why you'd make that correlation though, especially if the woman was presenting it that way. I don't buy it. I do know there are many ways to get an STD, I don't think having pubes is going to prevent one. Condoms.
But, like I said, I was shaving that area for a couple years before I even thought about having sex. Once I started thinking about having sex, I actually let it grow back because I generally do not like the appearance of my, or anyone's vagina. Thought having pubes would cover that up a bit, he he.
I don't know what I'm trying to get at. I know you're concerned about her doing this, and I probably would be as well, I just don't understand the question, so I said everything I have to say on the topic.
Oh, right, it doesn't grow back darker and thicker. I had peach fuzz above my lip that I trimmed with one of those electric trimmers and have done it a lot and don't notice a difference in that hair at all. I probably don't even need to do it, just don't like it there. But if I forget for months at a time, it's not like I notice it or anything.
As far as the bumps go, the neosporin is a good idea, I'd say. That sounds good. I didn't ever bother with anything, I just dealt with it because it wasn't that annoying most of the time, so I can't tell you what works for that.
I can see all the reasons you would be worried about this. The fact that she seems to only do it while on her period would eliminate at least one worry, for me, anyway.

There was a dream, and one day I could see it Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
There was a kid with a head full of doubt And I'll scream 'til I die and all the last of those bad thoughts are finally out
