Rash on neck from shaving

Common Questions and Answers about Rash on neck from shaving


427801 tn?1203844562 Since the day I started shaving Ive always developed what appears to be a rash (possibly acne) on my neck under the far ends of my jaw bone. I have tried every shaving cream under the sun, and none of them do anything to help the issue. I've also tried only shaving in the direction of hair growth so as to eliminate/minimize the possibility of it being ingrown hairs. Again, that doesn't help. So I've been wondering if maybe I'm allergic to the metal in the razors or something.
Avatar m tn I've had this rash on the back of my neck for many, many years. It's non raised, red and on a 1-10 itchy scale where 10 is the most itchy I would say it is a 2-4. What I've tried w/ no significant improvement: hydrocortisone cream (6 weeks) anti fungal cream (I believe it was lotrimin) (8 weeks) anti fungal shampoo (nizoral) (8 weeks) I do shave my head sometimes w/ a razor but usually w/ just a clippers. I go a couple of weeks w/o shaving and the rash remains.

Avatar f tn The rash started on the right side of my neck and quickly spread to the centre then to the left side it is red and pimply in some spots, felt like there was something under the skin in another spot some spots, it was very tender,itchy and inflamed, and would get very irritated from colar of coveralls rubbing on it at work, i let my beard grow out for a week and though it was going away but when i shaved it irritatated it and now its just like it was before and looks a little bumpy..
Avatar f tn also, it could be from shaving too, like really nasty razor burn. try getting some Gold Bond anti itch powder, like the super strength stuff, and apply that every time you get itchy. just do all you can to not itch, so they can heal as fast as possible... and try not shaving there for a while to see if that's the cause. good luck!
Avatar n tn I have that exact rash on the back of my head and neck also. I've had mine for alittle over a month. Did you happen to go find out what it is?
Avatar f tn I noticed a rash on my inner thighs about 6 days ago and realised a few days ago that it was also on my underarms. It appeared a few hours after I shaved these areas so I put it down to shaving rash but I've never had shaving rash like this before so I'm starting to think it's something else. The rash is just small red bumps but the itching is unbearable and it seems to be covering a larger area than before. Any ideas what it could be or how I could treat it?
Avatar m tn The doctor I went to see, told me that the rash is just a result of follicle hair swelling and the lymph node is from shaving over and over again. I guess I have sensitive skin. I had protected sex; however, I remember that I touched the outside of the condom and by a careless mistake, I touched a small sore on my forehead. I was trying to pop a pimple or something at the time. I know that I went to visit a doctor already, but I am still concerned.
Avatar n tn I'm 19 yrs old and I have always had "peach fuzz" on my neck but when I turned 18 it started to turn black and course and it keeps getting worse, is there something I can do to minimize the hair or possibly get rid of it?
Avatar m tn hello. i have a cluster of bumps on the back of my neck that i have had for a while. i think its from using my hair clippers on someone else i have tried lots of different ointments and nothing has helped can you please help me?
Avatar m tn The condition may occur anywhere on the skin.It starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph). Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Avatar f tn About a month ago I noticed a little pink/red spot on my pubic area and just thought it was dry skin or irritation from shaving or something. But yesterday I noticed that is has spread: There are clusters of tiny bumps and some that are also spread out on their own, that are mostly located on the right side of my pubic area. There is absolutely nothing in the vaginal area. They do not hurt, or itch. I have had unprotected sex twice, the last time being in September.
Avatar f tn if this was herpes from a recent infection you would also have flu like symptoms after the sores appear so based on these facts i would rule out herpes and conside it a rash from shaving the area as even bending down the short hairs would make contact with the hood and cause a rash.
Avatar n tn Thanks, I'm still feeling ill (fever that comes and goes, nausea, swollen neck). I'm just worried the razor rash on my penis shaft might have opened up during the sex and some of her vaginal fluid entered these areas that the condom didn't cover. As I said in an earlier post, the condom didn't go all the way down. This is my last post on this. Thanks for the advice.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have this recurring rash on my neck. It comes whenever my menses is to start. I was wondering if it could come from having oral herpes. Recently I have had a sore throat twice in one month two weeks apart. The rash on my neck is very painful. My doctor seems to think that it is some type of fungus. The dermatologists suggest that it is eczema. But I don't think that is the case. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.Also wear cotton undergarments.Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful.If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn Hope somebody can help... Over a year ago I got my hair cut, just a normal trim - the razor only being used on the back of my neck. On the walk home, my neck was really itchy but that's pretty normal after a haircut so I ignored it. A few days later the itch hadn't gone away and I'd noticed painful bumps in the area, I couldn't see them obviously so I took a picture and saw that the top of my neck was really red and irritated, covered in little red bumps.
Avatar m tn kindly move on...you have been assessed as NOT having a hiv concern.
Avatar n tn I am concerned because the skin on the back of my neck was damaged. During the shaving at one point the razor was applied with a little bit more pressure and it had grazed the skin which had subsequently become reddish and I would feel a buring sensation if I touched it with my fingers. However, I did not bleed. One day after that there were minute reddish lines at it became sort of a rash.
Avatar n tn Does it sound like these rashes were brought on my shaving ? I now keep that area trimmed and will not remove all the hair like I did before.
Avatar m tn Hi. Recently a patch of bumps have appeared on my scrotum. Aside from the stress this situation has been causing me, the only symptom is that I seem to itch around that area more than usually do. It does not hurt when I urinate or touch the bumps. I've been doing a little bit of research and thinking and as of right now I have about 3 possibilities. #1.
