No joke. Actually I find I have to shave my underarms at least partly, because the Tegaderm covers a lot of territory and those hairs hurt when they get snagged under there and it pulls on 'em.
I haven't shaved in .... 16 years. It's amusing that I'll start up again for my CGM but not to look nice in shorts.
Have to say I felt a bit... metrosexual the first time. But A Man's Gotta Do What A Man's Gotta Do, amirite? At least in my case
