I have been shaving my armpits since i was in grade 8 and i am in grade ten now.During the past month till now i have been getting pimles covering the whole two armpits. they are usualy red and pussy. Not only the are horrible they are really embarassing ,that i have to keep my arms down.
I have tried things like not appling deoderant straight after i shave and using clean razors and also not shaving for 2 weeks but thats just gross having hairy armpits.

.......What should i do? Plz help!....... [Confused]

It's perfectly okay to have hairy armpits, and frankly, it sounds like your skin needs a bit of a break. For the existing zits, try a bit of neosporin or another anti-bacterial cream. Also, mosturizing the skin will help it immensely.

For more info on the not shaving thing, check out our Shaving FAQ.

I've also found that using a good shaving cream (usually intended for the sensitive skin on men's faces) helps keep the skin from getting irritated. Also, steer clear of disposable razors. If you can, pick up a slightly more expensive razor that you can buy replacement blades for.
