When I first started shaving, at about age sixteen, I was unable to shave every day due to razor irritation and, in fact, still can't shave every day with a bladed razor, but can with an electric, though I am not sure if this is
significant. My wife has had, for
years, the same problem, but all over her body, most common on her arms and legs. Although her "infected follicles" do seem to be worse and last longer, seemingly healing more slowly.
