I'm red from scratching down there!
The itchiness you’re experiencing—and the redness that comes with scratching—it totally typical. After you shave down there, even if it’s just a tiny area, the follicles become super itchy when the hair starts to grow back in. That’s why you’re scratchin’ up a storm!
Shaving with shaving gel or cream instead of soap or body wash can help cut down on the itchiness. After you’ve shaved, pat the area dry with a clean towel, then apply an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin, or sponge off the area with a cotton ball dipped in milk. These tried-‘n’-true tricks are like gold when it comes to killing the itch!
