Re: HELP!! Large Itchy Swollen Bumps

Okay, it could be razor burn or it could be ingrown hairs. Either way, hydrocortisone might not be your best bet.

You know what works well for me? Aspercreme. The aspirin takes down the swelling and pain, just as it does for acne. Somehow, this is a different type of swelling than what cortisone treats.
