    To try and not get the rash in the first place, shave with the grain and then very gently against it if you feel you have to. If you're smooth enough without going against the grain then you're much less likely to get a rash. Use some kind of moisturiser on it aftwerwards and try not to wear anything too tight that will rub and irritate. I know this is obvious but use plently of shaving foam, for sensitive skin is best.

    In answer to the question i shave (am too chicken to wax) and i leave a little trimmed traingle at the top. I'm not too clean on the landing strip, i can never seem to get it in the middle

    EDIT: lol i meant keen on the landing strip, not clean.

    on me all off.

    on my man trimmed. it makes my work a lot easier.

    on girls, at least trim it.. its not nice getting a mouthful of hair.


    **this will sound crazy but it helps**

    to avoid the rash, after shaving put clear roll on deodorant over said area. I got this tip of strippers and it does work, how often do you get raor rash on your underarm??

    also hair minimising lostions may help. makes the hair thinnenr when it grows back.

    Sounds crazy, but like most crazy things it just might work. Will give it a go.

    Putting deodorant on or near your genitals can cause infections.

    If it's all healthy down there then it'll smell fine anyway. Deodorants can cause infections that'll make it smell icky. >.<

    waxing does hurt, yeah but its for the win! Try rubbing an icecube on the area afterwards and exfoliating

    Is it possible to epilate down there? I'm not too sure whether I would dare to risk it. But I'm thinking that, unlike with razors, an epilator is less likely to create a rash.. I'm just too chicken to try it!
