Itchy skin after shaving

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin after shaving


Avatar f tn I had to quit shaving, and just use an electric trimmer, which saved my skin (literally) for about a year, before things kind of went back to normal. So just beware, that if you ever want to try waxing, you may not be able to go back to shaving right away. Also, you may get ingrown hairs from just shaving, regardless of prior waxing. If that's the case, switch to electric trimmer! Way better than having ingrown hairs.
Avatar n tn Here women are, shaving where they shouldn't bother, and giving themselves ingrown hairs, and worrying that their pubic hairs are offensive, all because they feel like someone is going to judge them, i.e., their doctor, who might actually be the last person in the world to give a darn. If your husband has seen ladies with shaved vulvas in porn and wants you to do it because he might like it, that's one thing, but don't bother to do it because of your doctor.
Avatar f tn I gave up on shaving and told my husband that if bothers him he can shave me...He shaved my legs for me, but left my private area alone.

Avatar f tn Why do I get so itchy after shaving? It happens whether it's my under arms, vagina, or legs. Even after I moisturize I still have an itchy feeling.
Avatar m tn hi my wife gets this patch of dry itchy peeling skin after shaving. its always in the same spot. it itches so bad that she tries to shave that area as little as possible. it's raised. went to Dr. and he suggested a yeast infection of the skin but the yeast infection cream just made it worse. takes a couple weeks to go away with steroid cream.
Avatar f tn It could be the sensitivity in my skin after shaving but I've tried a lot of different lotions, shaving creme's, Razors, etc. Everyone had some really good tips and comments! I'm really thank full and will give it a try. I'm a 20 year old male. Ladies...I feel your pain!!!
Avatar f tn Make sure you are using a razor designed for that area and plenty of shaving cream. Best to shave AFTER a shower or bath. Cut longer hairs BEFORE shaving. 1% hydrocortisone cream (over the counter) might help after shaving the area.

Avatar f tn This all started after I changed my shaving routine down there. I went from shaving every once and a while, to shaving every SINGLE day from mid-july to end of august. I started noticing raised bumps on the skin of my vulva, as well as a milky discharge that came up between my lips at times. it went on like this until I got my period. The thing is, i got a fever the day before my period, and i felt horribly sick.
Avatar m tn Hello, It looks like irritated hair follicles after shaving and due to cold winds. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion as it will help in soothing the skin.Also wear cotton undergarments. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and moisturizers are also helpful .If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Avatar n tn after shaving maybe a day or two after i get itchy... red and is very irratant.. my skin is very sensitve to shaving foams and gels and have tried everything on the market on that.. i use soap and hot water at the moment and i still get it.. i cant use anything like neet or nair cause it irratates me to no end and i end up having to wrap my legs up with bandages and medicated salve. is there anything else i can use.. i have done waxing and that is so time consuming.. any suggestions ?
Avatar m tn four days ago, i was shaving my pubic hair and right after i finished doing it, i noticed several pimples, specially around my penis. I usually never shave my pubic hair, i have done it maybe 2 or 3 times in the last three years. I used an electric razor and i did not put any sort of shaving cream, NOTHING. And my pubic hair was dry. The pimples are not itchy and they do not hurt at all.
Avatar m tn Usually straight after, but it can at any time. Shaving before it grows out won't really do anything. To lessen the itching use a new razor each time, plenty of shaving foam and soak in water for ages. Only shave down-wards untill there is practically no hairs then you can go upwards. After that use a moisturising lotion, you can get some for sensitive skin or itch releif and apply it whenever its itchy. Wear loose fitting clothes.
Avatar n tn I have found two products that work great in moisturizing the skin and helping with itching. I am using a product called Aveno they carry everything from shaving Gel to bath soak. I really like there skin cream and the shaving Gel. All of there produces contain Colloidal oatmeal. I also found that using baby oil apply during my shower helps with dry itchy skin. The wrinkles should go away after tx as they are cause more so by dehydration of the skin cell, from what I have been told.
Avatar m tn You may try application of calamine on the affected site. It may work by soothing the skin. Also keep your skin well moisturized. If the symptoms persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
