Tendskin is very very good at getting rid of razor bumps. Just don't pick at them, because that makes them worse. I shave everyother day and that has also seemed to limit them.
Hi i too have suffered with this problem for many years,sometimes i have a respite from it and sometimes it,s really bad,i have tried everything and nothing has really helped.
I have started a new regime now of washing my beard area in head and shoulders shampoo,i have done this for the past two weeks and my skin is alot less redder and the itchyness has calmed down quite a bit,but maybe this is due to the fact that i have stopped using Benzoyl Peroxide and other creams prescribed by my doctor.
As hard as it is i have also stopped picking at the ingrown hairs as only a few weeks ago the whole area got infected and looked 100 times worse,luckily some antibiotic cream healed it up within a week.
It,s an ongoing problem one i sure as hell hate as it,s always there no matter what i try.
