How many times can a disposable razor be used before throwing it away and using a new one?

Razors: There really isnt any set amount of time a disposable razor can be used. Once the lubricating strip starts to wear away and the blade dulls it is time to get a new one. A dull blade will feel like there is much more resistance as you shave and instead of shaving hair you may feel it is doing more to just pull it out. This can lead to more irritation and ingrown hair. ...Read more

How many times should u use a disposable razor on your genitals before throwing it away?

How many times should u use a disposable razor on your genitals before throwing it away?

Once: Use it once for two reasons: 1) the blade is duller so you're more likely to get nicks and cuts if you use it again. 2) if by chance you had a mild infection, the bacteria is now growing on the gunk built up on the blade and you could re-infect yourself the next time. ...Read more

Laser: There are laser therapies available, but most people are scared. It also depends what color your hair is. If you have blond hair, then you're not going to get good results with laser. There's also waxing, which pulls hair from its roots. I don't know of any other solutions... ...Read more

Ouch...: Yeah, i hear you on this one. This is frequently an anal fissure or tear in the skin around the, ahem, exit site. Strong stool softeners (miralax over the counter works great) and excellent anal hygiene will help if so, but you need to see a doc and get it checked out first. Don't worry - they're not any bigger fans of that exam than you are so you're in it together. ...Read more

Stop shaving: If you get razor bumps from shaving, it is important that you stop. There are some over the counter cream that can be used without having to resort to using a razor. Try the cream on a really small part of the inner aspect of your thigh or arm first to make sure you are not allergic to it prior to using on larger aspects of the body. Use OTC cream for bumps if no infection ...Read more

Needs to be seen: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Folliculitis is one possibility. Yeast is a possibility and over the counter fungal cream will fix it. Trauma from recent intercourse if possible. Herpes is an std which can cause this. Other possibilities too. Schedule an exam or a virtual visit ...Read more
