-use warm water to soften the skin and hairs before shaving; shaving right after a shower.
-apply shaving cream, foam, soap, and ive always been told that for pubic hair use hair conditioner
-shaving in the direction of hair growth not stretching your skin(if u do against the hair growth, even though it gives a closer shave, thats how the bacteria gets in)
-rinsing your razor thoroughly after each use and replacing your blades every week or more often if necessary.
using razors with two or three blades, attempt to cut the hair underneath the actual skin line, inadvertently making it easier for those hairs to then poke back into the skin
i dont know what to do!!
when you cut off the hair for the first time this exposes the bit where the hair grows from, as its not used to having nothing there its verry easy for dirt to get in, thats what casues the red things
WHATEVER YOU DO DONT SQUEEZE THEM
it rly does make them worse and takes longer to heal
THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO WHEN SHAVING:
1.go with the grain!!!! ie. go top to bottom, dont go up or you can cut the little bumps where the hair grows from
2.use LOADS of shaving foam/cream and always keep you razor wet
3.trim them before shaving, no more than half a centimeter long pubes
4. be very careful, dont push down too hard and dont g over the same area more than 4 times
5.put vaseline on after
EVERYONE for the first time gets rashes. The rashes and pimples will go after like 3 or 4 days
the only way to not get them.. is sorry to say..just keep shaving
after you have shaved down there like 5 or so times, your pholicles will touhgen up and you wont get any rashes or anything
after about 3 months of shaving you can start going against the grain, (against the direction the hairs grow) this means you can get a parfectly smooth shave that you cant get with going with the grain
so people, its just time and patience, the more you shave, the more smooth you can get it
OH AND!!! when you get the rash things a pimples, dont EVER shave agian till they have completely gone and clear
picking them with make them into cuts which will take 3 times as long to heal
leave them alone = 3-4 days to heal
pick them= 2-3 weeks to heal
hope this helps guys
and YES, the ladies do loave it a whole lot more
and the blowjobs always last for longer ;D
all it is is that you aren't used to it
human biology makes it so that hair will ALWAYS
grow there, the red spots are probably some natural defensive
reaction your body produces (probably blood to supply the hair folicles with nutrients to make the hair thicker, as you know hair gets thicker the more you cut it). because you know you don't want the hair, doesn't mean the body does, your body always responds in a defensive way, the itch probably is a chemical message telling you to STOP SHAVING IT. not saying you shouldn't, i do it to but you will get used to it no worries. 3~4 weeks max for me xP
the lazier surgery sure its a good idea, but you know.. the hair is there for a reason, one day you suddenly want hair and it isn't there its your loss. for me wouldn't do it (no offense ><)
im not a biologist or a medical student, i'm a high school teenager who merely used basic biology im learning in high school to come up with a theory.
is this normal or should i see a doctor
A couple helpful hints to prevent or help treat those red bumps...
1) Allow your skin and hair to soften in the shower before shaving. Use a loofah or washcloth to exfoliate before shaving (this also will help any ingrown hairs to come out from under the skin).
2) Always be sure to use a good shaving cream/gel or work up a good lather with soap
3) For first starting out shave IN the direction of hair growth NOT against
4) Try not to go over the same area more than three times
5) Pat dry
6) Finish with a light moisturizer (with aloe) and some baby powder (after the lotion has dried)
Unfortunately the red bumps are going to happen the first couple weeks of shaving. The skin is not used to the razor yet so its a normal reaction. Your hair may grow back in looking much thicker or darker, this is just the from the angle that the hair has been cut. The hair itself has not changed so don't shave harder. After time (3-4 days) the bumps should become less red and after many shaving sessions your skin should become more used to the razor and therefore less red bumps.
If you notice that the bumps have white tops (often puss filled), LEAVE THEM ALONE. NO PICKING. A hot shower with a loofa for exfoliating and some antibiotic cream afterwards should clear up the problem. Do NOT shave them and if the problem still remains after a couple days go see a doctor.
It's best to trim them a little over a few days before shaving, but still... ouch.
help me please.. :-(
