    If I let my hair on the bikini area grow, it itches, but if I shave (even gently) the stubble also itches. Is there anything I can put on it to stop?

    I'm not sure of any particular brand, but Boots and other pharmaceutical shops tend to sell beard conditioner for when pruritus occurs. It's not exactly for the same cause, but it's very similar. If you do buy it, just be careful that it doesn't irritate the skin more, as that area is a bit more tender and susceptible to irritation. Best thing to do is to try a little bit of the conditioner to ensure your skin reacts well, and if so, obviously put it where needed.

    It's not expensive many salons will do it inexpenisvely. Also I would say it's worth it as it saves you time and effort of having to shave everyday because the hair grows back slowly.

    Alternatively you could trim it to a length where it's not itchy or stubbly.

    Thanks, which one would you get from Boots? I already use shaving gel and put salcyclic acid on sometimes

    Everyone's hair grows at different speeds, my body hair grows back so slowly (except my eyebrows and moustache ). I often alternate between shaving ant waxing aswell and just doing what I fee like so I can't really recomend how often.

    Mine is the same so I just keep it trimmed really short and it's fine. Depends on if you want to have it all removed or if you don't mind keeping some.

    If you're going to get it removed, look at lotions and serums that help with ingrown hair for private areas, that's usually what causes the itching when it's growing back

    Eternal struggle. Waxing is the best option for minimal regrowth but if you can't afford it or stomach doing it yourself then hair removal cream is great (for me anyway). It might not help if you have sensitive skin but I find the regrowth is soft so it doesn't itch.

    Otherwise I wonder if there are products you can get, cream or whatever, to minimise itching, that way you can choose whether to shave or not and it won't itch either way. Worth a google maybe.

    sounds like you need a new hair removal technique if shaving or growing it out isn't for you. i prefer waxing and it lasts long too. but there's hair removal cream too or maybe try a different razor?
