Razor "burn": When a close shave of any area on the body is done with a dull razor or without shaving cream, skin cells are exfoliated and injury to the underlying dermis causes a red itchy rash. Unfortunately, this has occurred to your labia and because you are dominant with either your left or right hand, the opposite labia in your non dominant hand got the brunt of the "injury".
