Prevent ingrown hairs on armpits & genitals after shaving.. And how to identify. Are they dangerous??

Not dangerous: Using a sharp razor is helpful to prevent ingrown hairs. Also not saving your genitals is a good idea. You could consider laser or electrolysis to decrease the need for shaving and the risk of ingrown hairs.
