A few tips: It sounds as though you have sensitive skin. Gently exfoliate the area. Begin using Tend Skin post shaving. Try to wear cotton underwear whenever possible, and try not to shave just prior to your outing. Laser Hair Removal would be the best long term solution for you, provided you have the right hair color and skin type.

Razor bumps: Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving. >
