I know tons of people have posted about razor burn and such, but I read a post awhile ago when someone recommended some product that really helps to soothe razor burn, but I just can't find it!
Does anyone know of such a product?...

I put on this stuff called Elidel tonight... It's perscription, but it's not really for razor burn... it's for like, excema and contact dermatitis, but I thought maybe it would help... ANyways, does anyone know?

There's Bikini Zone for the bikini area. If you mean razor burn for your legs, then just some regular lotion or the aftershave gel that Skintimates sells for legs is good. I wouldn't advise using something for excema on razor burn, though, as it isn't what the doctor had in mind when she/he prescribed it. If your razor burn is that severe that lotion and aftershave gel don't work, then you might want to see the dermatologist about it, or consider alternatives to shaving.

It's on my legs. I mean, I've never ever had razor burn before, but my dad didn't buy my usual razors because he said they were too expensive, and now my legs are killing me! I mean, I think part of the reason they hurt so badly is cuz I have a million minor little knicks... but it still hurts...
My mom told me to use the Elidel. She's an RN, she said it's really more of a lotion for dry skin but it helps with excema... I dunno, it just burns!
