Questions after shaving pubic area

Used a non-electric razor for the first time, and there is some pretty bad irritaion; it's bumpy and somewhat itchy. Is this razor burn? Also is there anyway to treat this to make it go away quicker?

Re: Questions after shaving pubic area

where are you from? I only ask because they sell some stuff here (uk) and its botanics kinda gel which is for putting on after hair removal. it looks similar to the green aloe vera gel they sell for sunburn. Anyway if you can find this stuff or something similar and keep it in the fridge, you can put it on after you shave and it cools the area down and stops as much irritation.

There is a product put out by Sally Hanson called Bikini plus. It is a clear gel that gets rid of the bumps and itchyness and prevents ingrown hair.

Re: Questions after shaving pubic area

I had the same problem when I started shaving and went through all kinds of creams and such to try and help it. I honestly found Life brand aloe vera gel (just plain old aloe vera, no additives) to work the best. It relieves the burning/itching and soothes. Eventually, after shaving for so long the bumps and irritation goes away. I have been shaving for years and years now and no longer experience any discomforts from it. Well, only if the darned razor is dull But I still use the aloe vera

Oh and to answer your question "Is this razor burn?" - yes I would believe so

I would recommend using an electric razor and trimming the hair. It doesnt irritate the skin and still gives it a clean look.

Re: Questions after shaving pubic area

use good quality medicated powder or some soothing gel on this burn. You can also apply ice to provide relief from burning sensation. i got this imp info from a very good website
