Not uncommon -: especially once the hairs begin to grow back. 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. Consider a steroid cream decrease inflammation. Better yet, why just stop shaving your pubic area.
