    Hello everyone.
    I have been shaving *down there* since October and had months of no problems. then i bought an electric shaver and got really bad shaving rash. It was bright red and hot. Ever since then I have had ingrowing hairs and bad rash at the very outside.
    So... what can I do at the moment to help me get rid of the rash/ingrowing hairs?
    How long do you have to wait for your hair to grow to get it waxed?
    I am sure I shaved aganist the grain which made me have ingrowing hair.

    give it 4 weeks, and go get a professional wax- you'll see the difference! i've made the same mistake so dw

    It is not itchy I just want the redness to go away.
    I can not wait four weeks for a wax.... I work as a promotions lady and for the next few weeks I get painted and walk around in the nude... we can not have hair, painter says we have to get rid of if (even arm hair).

    I waited five days for the hair to grow, the lady said she could do some of my hair, it would hurt a lot because it was so short, it did hurt, kind of wanted her to stop.

    Don't use an electric shaver down there! Wet shave with a gentle, sensitive (aloe vera) shaving gel should do the trick. Take care, don't hurt yourself

    Should've gone with the grain, much lower chances of irritation forming.
