  • How long have you been shaving? If you are new to shaving your pubic area, then the skin needs to get used to it. So it may take a while until the bumps and itching goes away. For me it took a few months but then it was gone.

  • I'm almost 23 and have been shaving there since I was 15 so that's almost 8 years and I still get the bumps sometimes I think you need to shave different directions using a mans Gillette razor like the mach 3 and use a shaving cream and after your done apply lotion

  • I have found that shaving with the hair instead of against it helps with the bumps (if that makes any sense lol)

  • I think it really depends on the person. I shave and have never gotten any bumps, but I know a few women who do. Weird...
    It does itch when it grows back though! Lol

  • I don't shave bald, I keep a landing strip but I put a little bit of the dove deodorant on it. I use the deodorant that reduces shaving stubble on your underarms. Mind you I don't put it "in" anywhere just on the panty line where I have the biggest tendency to get bumps.
