Yeah?: I'm sure it won't hurt but i would consider getting an over the counter silver based antibiotic and combining it with the topical anesthetic. Razor burn is really a low level infection and the pain will get relief when that improves. If tea tree cream is a moisturizer then i would avoid it. If an antiseptic then it may help. Solarcaine can help but keep clean with soap and water 2x per day. ...Read more

Natural Healing: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. ...Read more
