Re: Bumps on legs due to leg hair :(

Sounds like ingrown hairs. Why they started because of moving, I don't know...
I read somewhere years ago that when shaving, use a single blade to help elimated ingrown hairs.
I tried it and yes, it did help quite a bit. I felt I didn't get as close of a shave after awhile and the razor didn't last as long, but being bump free was well worth it!
Give it a try.
