Was this towards me? Diflucan is an antifungal, not effective for bacterial vaginosis. I had diflucan multiple times against the usual thrush side-effect of the antibiotic courses. Possibly also another antifungal at some point, but I don't remember well.

Beard waxing is apparently a thing. A recipe for disaster? I expect it would be pretty damn painful, but waxing or plucking would successfully eliminate the shadow from hair seen beneath the skin, and is non-permanent.
