What lotion can I use that actually helps wit razor bumps bikini area & blemishes on the body caused from spots & sun exposer? Please help

Also, check to ensure it isn't tinea versicolor, a fungal skin infection often noticeable after being in warmth. Tinea will improve with anti fungals like selsun blue. True sunspots will often improve by using a hydroquinone lotion. ...Read more

A different laser wavelength would be necessary to reduce redness (i.e., Pulsed dye lasers, Intense pulsed light, etc.). In fact, your redness will be slightly increased during the healing process. ...Read more
