Hi there, thank you for posting your interesting question on Ehealthforum. I hope that I can give you a few pointers but please remember that this is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor. If you are worried about your health, please talk to your doctor.

It would be unusual I think for facial hair, as in soft flowing beard, to cause vaginal irritation. Rough stubble of course is another thing. I suppose the answer to your question is it depends on what type of facial hair you are talking about. Also, if you skip oral sex for a while and your vaginal irritation goes away, well that should answer your question.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
