Question: How To Get Rid Of Razor Bumps


Been suffering for a while now, & it just keeps getting worse. My problem is under the armpits & pubic area. It's now starting on my eyebrows. I am terrified I am going to be disfigured.

Antibiotics didn't work, no over the counter creams did either, I have no more options, I am looking for a cure! Please help!

Hi Tanya. I used to suffer badly with ingrown hairs. The kind that not only looked awful but were very painful as well.

After some trial and error I discovered a few things that really helped to lessen the problem.

1. Buy cheap disposable razors and don't use them more than once. Reusing the same razor over and over again is a big no no for people who have issues with shaving. Buy them cheap, use them once and toss them to prevent bacterial infections that can make matters worse.

2. Never shave dry hair. Make sure your hairs are soft and completely covered in shaving cream. This helps the hair to be shaved easily and reduces the friction from you having to go over the same area over and over again.

3. Last but not least, two words....Tend Skin...use it after every shave. It works!
