This is folliculitis
. If folliculitis is mild, topical over-the-counter antibiotic
will work (polysporin
, neosporin or bacitracin
) 2-3 times/day. Topical Hydrocortisone
will also help. If very tender, you may need brief oral antibiotics, and let it heal before shaving again. Always shave with the direction of hair growth, & try aloe vera after.
