  • I have to shave about every other day....sometimes I let it go alittle longer, but then like you said it itches and drives you crazy. Just keep on shaving it....or if you do want to let it grow out, it'll stop itching in about a week!

  • For me if its been awhile since shaving that area... such as over a month and then I shave... it itches for a few days and after that the itching will stop. If I shaved that area everyday I will get razor burn and thats painful and plus eventually will itch so I just try to shave every week and half or so...

  • if you do it everyday and a little of the pink baby lotion, you wont be itchy or irritated after like a week week and a half of doing so...

  • Put on some hyrdrocortizone ( some kind of anti-itch cream) but for next time you shave so close immediately put lotion in that area and continue until you feel some comfort. Or don't shave just trim it to look nice with a pair of scissors and a fine tooth comb (tthen add moose and hairspray)...LOL Just kidding. I usually just trim and use the comb for guidance.

  • I've found that waxing works a lot better for me than shaving - no irritation or itching like with shaving.

  • I shave pretty much every day. I'm lucky that I don't get razor burn or irritation from it. I will try the lotion right after though because that just sounds like a good idea. The more you do it (at least for me) the less you itch, I've been shaving for almost 10 years now & I can't rememeber the last time I itched because of shaving. So if you like how it looks & feels it will go away for the most part & follow these ladies advice :)

  • I do it once a week and after i'm done shaving I will put lotion down there so I don't get icty, or any red bumps.
