Are there any acne treatments for getting rid of shaving (razor) bumps?

Are there any acne treatments for getting rid of shaving (razor) bumps?

Won't help: Acne treatment such as topical benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, and retinoic acid derivatives won't touch "razor bumps" (pseudofolliculitis barbae). The key is altering your shaving techniques for your special type of hair. Http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/tc/razor-bumps-topic-overview. Read more

See an MD tommrow AM: See your pcp or OB gyn. There are several things which can cause this rash and most of these things will improve much faster if they are seen and treated immediately. To bring up a sore subject, herpes is a possibility, and it is key to treat this with oral meds asap. Skin infection and yeast infection can also both be causes of such a rash and are easily treated. See a doc first thing to. Read more

I have terrible razor bumps! Is there a cure for them or a way to prevent them?

I have terrible razor bumps! Is there a cure for them or a way to prevent them?

Throw out the razor!: You may need a course of antibiotics yet I suspect you have pseudofolliculitis due to the embedded hair follicles from using a regular razor. You can prevent this by using a pre-shave lotion (barium sulfide, ask your pharmacist) or by tossing the manual razor and using an electric rotary razor. Please see a doctor to assure you do not have a staph infection. Good luck and safe shaving! Read more

Hair reduction: I would suggest you use a different method of hair reduction for these areas. You are having razor burn and you can develop pustules and skin discoloration. Consider laser hair reduction, waxing or other. Keep these areas clean to prevent infection from the little nicks and cuts that are there. Read more
