Select a triple-edged razor to remove hair. You will get a closer shave and less chance of creating razor bumps. You can also opt to go electric, which may be easier if you have super-sensitive skin. Shaving is very personal; experiment with different types of razors. Make sure your razor is new or in excellent condition before you begin.
Shave immediately after you bathe. Your skin is soft and moist and will be easier to shave. Use a gentle touch, and refrain from pulling your skin.
Use a rich, smooth gel for shaving. Select a product that claims to soften and soothe damaged skin. Use a scent-free formula.
Shave in the direction of the hair growth. Do not use the razor repeatedly over one particular area. It will increase the likelihood of razor bumps.
Apply a 1 percent hydrocortisone cream to the pubic area after you shave to reduce sting and irritation. Make sure you don't use the cream daily. It is not a long-term solution and can cause your skin to thin over time.
Moisturize your skin liberally after shaving. Apply a topical acne cream in the area to minimize razor bumps. Look for a product that contains benzoyl peroxide.
See a doctor if razor bumps do not heal in a few days. Repeat shaving will make the condition worse.
Hydrocortisone creams can cause stretch marks in the pubic area if used for a prolonged period of time.
