Dealing with Ingrown Hairs and Razor Bumps

Both men and women have to deal with the problem of ingrown hairs. For men, it is mostly ingrown hairs on their face in their beards. For women, ingrown hairs are typically a problem after they shave their legs, underarms, or bikini lines. These ingrown hairs form once you shave the hair or remove it otherwise from under the skin surface. The hair will continue to grow but curl over and not exit to the surface. This process causes an ingrown hair to form a bump on the skin, which is also known as a razor bump.

When these curly shaped hairs grow and burrow into the adjacent skin, razor bumps occur. The ends of the hair are sharpened through shaving, making it easier for the hair to grow into the scan. These razor bumps can make shaving impossible since they burn and itch. There have been, up till now, a couple different creams that could help you with this. One is the cortisone cream, but it is unable to be used for a long period of time since it absorbs into the bloodstream and can cause side effects. They are also depilatory creams you can use to remove hairs, but they tend to scar and burn the skin. Neither of these creams is a good solution to the problem.

If you have skin irritation shortly after you shave an area, that is defined as a razor burn. This area looks like a red rash and can give you a burning sensation. They can also swell up and be itchy. Razor burn is most common when men shave their face or women shave their armpits and legs. Razor burn can because by having sensitive skin, dry shaving, using hard soap, or using a dull blade.
