Unfortunately, shaving rash is a very common problem for men (and women) around the World. This issue is more common in men because we shave more often than women… but the causes and cures for this rash are constant in both genders. This tutorial will show you how to cure shaving rash and the hidden problem that most people don’t realize they have.
Shaving red rash is characterized by having a series of red bumps after shaving and a big itchy rash on the affected area. This is a problem which can start overnight and is something many people find difficult to cure. The reason why shaving rash develops is because shaving your skin is actually a very strenuous procedure, and any infection or problem with the hair follicles will cause them to become inflamed and itchy (which is what you are seeing right now).
Not many people know this, but the main cause of shaving rash is actually down to a hidden condition called “Folliculitis”. This is an infection of your hair follicles, and is where bacteria or fungi live & breed inside the roots of your neck or bikini-line hair. The infected follicles may appear to be okay when you don’t shave them for a few days but as soon as they become irritated, they will become red and very itchy.
Folliculitis is a condition that affects millions of people around the World and is the main cause of shaving rash. You can tell if you have it by looking at the way in which your rash develops after the shave – if it looks red, feels itchy and has a series of unsightly bumps or zits inside it, then you’ve probably got a case of Folliculitis.
To cure this condition, you first need to make sure you have a good electric razor. This is crucial and you should go shopping for the highest quality one that you can afford. This will work to sooth a lot of the irritation that most folliculitis-infected hairs receive from shaving. After that, you also need to kill the bacteria or fungi inside the hair follicles. There are currently no “official” cures for this, but there’s a very easy way to get rid of them by using some home-made antiseptic remedies.
