When I first started shaving I did really bad. There's some kind of calming bikini cream you can put on after you shave. It helps a lot. You can get it at Wal-mart or any drug store, but I can't remember the name of it for anything.

I used to but only when I scratched so much cause it itches if you don't moisturize it. Rub baby oil on it

Stop shaving.  Use a cream like Nair or Veet or get waxed to avoid those bumps.

Waxing will pretty much eliminate that problem. If you can't or don't want to wax, make sure you always use a brand new razor with the moisture strip and as many blades as possible. Sometimes using a men's razor is even better because they tend to have more blades when you get the better ones. A five blade razor with a moisture strip is ideal. Also, take a hot shower and clean the area first, several times. The longer you've been under hot water the better because it makes the hair come off easier.
