One of the worst side effects of shaving one’s private parts is intense itching. It’s upsetting and can be humiliating in public, so try to avoid it if at all possible. In this article, I’d like to go over some of the things you can do after shaving your private area to minimize or reduce itching.
1. After shaving, apply a warm compress to the private area to help relieve itching. Applying a warm compress made of clean cloth can relieve the itch and hasten the healing process. By adding salt to the warm water, the therapeutic effects can be enhanced.
2. Using a steroid cream, such as hydrocortisone cream, has been shown to significantly reduce irritation, inflammation, and itching. You can use any of these lotions without hesitation, but keep in mind that too much of everything can be harmful.
3. Moisturize with something natural after shaving to help smooth the skin and prevent irritation and itching, which can make you appear dirty. Anecdotal evidence suggests that aloe vera, a natural moisturizer, can help relieve irritation and ingrown hairs.
