Trimming Pubic Hair (Female)
I have always had difficulty trimming the hair in my pubic area. Previously I would use a double bladed razor and a pair of scissors to trim the hair back. However, I always ended up with razor burn, and the hair would be cut in such an uneven manner that it would be very uncomfortable.
I recently decided I couldn’t stand it anymore and went out bought an electric bikini razor designed specifically for trimming the bikini areas. I used it for the first time, and it helped immensely. No more razor burn, and the hair was trimmed even so it was finally comfortable.
However, I ran into a new dilemma. It caused the pubic area to be itchy. I was wondering if others have had a similar experience and if so, how to mitigate it (special lotions or creams, etc.) (note: I have sensitive skin and often cannot use skin products that are scented.)
I use dh’s beard trimmer to trim it short but not too short. I discovered its a fine line between so short that it itches and and just long enough that its not uncomfortable. I don’t remember what setting it is but I just know when I use it on that setting I don’t get itchy. Maybe try experimenting with different lengths to see if some are better than others?
I tried shaving for the first time not long ago. In preparation for my experiment I bought several things from the shaving aisle (I think they are Nair brand), one of which is some kind of after-shaving soothing cream or maybe a gel. I haven’t tried it yet so can’t personally vouch for it, but as soon as I’m allowed to try shaving again (post surgical recovery) I intend to because I also have had a very uncomfortable amount of itching!!
I’m hoping you’ll get the answers you need.
Over the years, this topic has been like your skin – sensitive! So as a man, I’d better not say much. 😉
But if I may say something, it seems a good number of people (both men and women), suffer ill effects of one type or another in their attempts to remove all or most of their pubes. I understand that it is leading a growing number of people to go more natural or settle for trimming.
