In brief: Razor bumps

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. >

A steroid cream might be applied to decrease inflammation. Exfoliation may be recommended to remove dead skin cells with retinoids.
