So I shaved "down there" about 5 or 6 days ago. About 2 days later, when the hair started growing back, I noticed what looked like a pimple about 2 or 3 inches below my waistline. Is this something I should be concerned about or does it sound like an ingrown hair or other shaving irritation? I haven't been shaving down there for very long and I'm still not very good at manuevering the razor so it wouldn't suprise me if i nicked myself either. Thanks so much! [Smile]

From what it sounds like, you just have either an ingrown hair or some irritation. I've been shaving for a while and I still get them. Irritation can either appear during/right after shaving, or it can take a couple hours to a couple days to show up. I think it might be do to chafing from underwear, but its not a health concern. (just an annoyance.)

I know this is kind of late, but I have the same problem so whenever I get out of the shower I always use lotion on my legs and then with the little bits of lotion left I always massage it into the areas I've just shaved it helps SO much with irritation and razor burn.
