Shaving down there? Ow!

I have never shaved down there, I trim it . I have shaved just enough to wear a bikini. I get so freaking irritated from shaving that I hate to even do that. I put lotion on after and reapply often but still get itchy red painful bumps. I couldn't imagine shaving it all. Even using bikini zone hasn't helped in the past.

Yup. Start slow. Don't shave it all off at once.. work your way bald

use an electric razor to get the majority and a regular one for the rest if need be. Then rub hair conditioner on the area to make it softer and stop it from being so irritated. It works awesome!!

Used to wax it, but have not had to do anything since December when I started chemotherapy and all my body hair fell out

I use a brad new razor and Coochy Cream. That stuff is amazing! Then apply raw coconut oil. No issues with bumps.

I put hydrocortisone on right after I shave and let it soak in. It works for me. I only have to do it once. It's a prescription one though my husband got from his dermatologist when he had a rash. I'm sure store bought would work too.

I've been shaving down there since I was 15, now I'm 23, and it takes forever to grow back in..it takes time to get used to it. Like someone else said, take it slow..lol..

Coochy cream is awesome for shaving down there.  It's the only thing I'll use.  I didn't know about the coconut oil though.

use conditioner to shave with, and stick deordorant in the area after you dry off, it is the only thing that works for me
