Question about down south (female area).. =)

I trim down south, and now I want to shave it off. BUT- everytime I do, I end up regretting it because it either burns or itches really badly. Then I get these nasty irritation bumps- and uggggghhh!!

Does anyone know how I can make it more pleasant, for not only my hubby, but myself aswell?

  • Coochie cream does work good, but it's like $10.00 for a 6 oz bottle....conditioner is the equivilent of coochie cream, and I think anon:42 has a good idea about letting it soak in a warm bath first, I'm gonna try that.

  • Try using nair or veet. Get the one that says for sensitive skin.

  • Do it after taking a hot shower or while in a warm bath. Use lotion afterward with a moisturizer (you can use aloe too but sometimes that burns!). It might itch as the new hair comes in for the first couple of times, but like with shaving your armpits soon you will get used to it and it won't anymore. Good luck! :)

  • Yep.
    I usually get it waxed though.

  • Do you want it completely bald? If so get it waxed or if you shave you need to put lots of lotion so it won't dry up and grow these razor bumps and itch.

    I just trim it with a comb and scissor and that is just fine for me and my dh...:)

  • I use this stuff called Coochie Creme, it's amazing. If you use it correctly, it prevents razor burn and ingrown hairs!

  • Waxing can cause small tears in the skin and lead to infections so be careful...I always take a warm/hot bath and soak for a bit then use conditioner on it while shaving and use baby sensitive skin lotion (no alcohol) afterwards.
