Here's some advice: 1. Stop shaving. Let your hair grow out.. if you think you won't like it, try it anyway, you might. 2. Use a wet/dry electric shaver, one that does NOT have rotary blades. Espeically the so-called ones that "lift" your hair, i.e. pull it out, causing irritation. Use a triple foil Braun, Panasonic, or Remington. 3. Use sensitve skin shaving cream, along with lots of water, and the aforementioned wet/dry electric shaver. 4. Use talc to help sooth the irritated skin.
