Quoting Stormy:

Would the aloe vera for a sun burn work cause thats all i have.



As long as it's 100% aloe with no artificial colors or additives. Try putting it in the refridgerator to cool the aloe vera before applying it. You should only need a small amount for relief. Try wearing silk panties so you won't have problems with, um, snagging. Oh and maybe using a bikini trimmer would work out better. The hair will be nicely trimmed and short - sans the itchiness.

Shave in the shower.. the hot water opens up your pores which makes it easier to shave (smoother effect), and slab on some lotion as soon as you step out to lock in the moisture.

I use nair to remove the hair, and then deodorant usually in the morning and at night.

I suggest waxing.....Once I shaved and thought hand sanitizer would help the itch and bumpiness...oh NO! Pain like I have never imagined.....

Hair conditioner in the shower is the best...let it sit on there for a minute or two, it softens the hair and makes it easy to shave off..reduces ingrown hairs and the skin is super smooth :) Shave like every 2-3 days

I agree i keep mine shaved and you don't notice it after a little while and shave with the way the hair grows not against the "grain" it does get better

I keep it shaved, and I just keep up on it. I go back over it every other day when I'm in the shower.

i use a lotion specifically designed for sensitive skin. if you choose to continue with the painless brazillian, i suggest the venus embrace razor..(most comfort) and use hair conditioner as shaving cream. after the 3rd time doing it, you wont even notice the itch.

electric razors that men use for shaving work great!! plus they dont make you itchy. i just hate the bumps it makes from razor burn. i dont have time to do it as often as i would like though

The best thing to do is to use a deodarant stick over the shaved area right after you shave. That really reduces the itch and the bumps. This works really well on just the bikini area too. It may sound weird but trust me, it works.

I find that mens aftershave is good to stop the itching if you can stand some stinging for a little bit :) Thats may just be me though...

can i just say you're a braver woman than me there is no way that i would let my husband near my bits with a razor after seeing what he does to his own face! lol next time i would go with waxing it hurts a little but it lasts longer and doesn't itch and also looks more attractive without the red blotches

there is an over the counter cream you can get called bikini zone. works wonders! i buy mine at rite-aid. if you have any little nicks it will sting for a slight sec. (nothing major) when you first put it on.....also gets rid of razor burn bumps!

It does itch shaving it again helps. My husband likes that to! Next time look into going and having it waxed it last longer and does not get as itchy! Tell him if he wants you to you to go through that then you get a day at the spa! He may change his mind! LOL

Hi, I have shaved "down there" from the time it started being there, after a while you get use to. To keep it really smooth I usually shave no more then the third day. Try baby powder or using an aloe shaving cream when you shave it except for inner part. If you keep up on it after a while you won't even notice. And I give you credit letting your husband do it for the first time. the only time my husband comes near that area with a razor is when i'm so pregnant I can't see it over my stomach.lol. I hope this helps.

yeah, regardless it's gonna itch, but after a few times it'll only itch for like a bit on the first day.

A hint> use veet...it takes 5 minutes no razors and then use a moisture soap or lotion, it will be smooth for a week or so, Veet is nice and doesnt smell bad like nair and razors will always leave you irritated:P

Quoting Amy:

If you go to athenashn.com they have a wonderful product for shaving called "coochy" it is wonderful! it prevents razor burn and it works especially well for down there. If you keep shaving with that it will reduce itching as you keep you area bare. Also try to shave frequently as this will also help getting you immune to the itch.


I also sell Coochy shave cream.  It is an amazing product.  My website is http://www.slumberpartiesbystacim.com



Check it out!

I had that same problem, buy bikini zone. You put it on right after shaving when it is dry. It works awesome!!

[deleted account]

Next time you shave, make sure your using a sensitive shave gel and I personally love the razors that have the ring of aloe around the shaver. Since I have started using them I never get razor burn ANYWHERE.

before you get out of the shower after shaving use a little hair conditioner and rub it on! works like a charm!

you know how people throw those slumber party sex toy parties? go to one or get a catalog from one and try the couchi shave stuff, the gel and the spray, works like a charm! its helps cut down the the irritation from razor burn and bumps which is the reason for the itch, also always use a new razor when shaving that area, as the skin is so sensative and drag in the razor at all will make it worse. unfortunatly nothing will take away all the irritation, thats just par for the course, unless you go get waxed.



but try couchi! you will love it so much you will start using it under your arms, on you legs and on your arms as well. good luck!

baby powder works, and also if you keep it up you won't notice the itch after a few shaves.

I can't go 100% bald! I have to leave some there because it's one part (right above) that gets REALLY itchy REALLY quick. So, I say leave a small patch right above your actual "lady parts."

you get used to it. that sounds horrible but really you dont notice it anymore. maybe when it starts to grow back a bit but then you shave again and presto lol
