Natural and Home Remedies – Razor Bumps on Throat

When shaving the throat, there are a couple of obstacles to be on the lookout for – including the Adam’s apple and thin skin. If you cause a nick, scratch, or cut while removing hair from this part of the body, you increase your chances of suffering the irritation associated with razor bumps (also known as pseudofolliculitis barbae) – where pimple-like formations infiltrate the skin. To rid yourself of this distraction, there are remedies found within the home that can bring relief, as well as natural solutions to treat your symptoms without causing further irritation.

Natural Remedies

Alum Block:

If you should nick or cut your skin during a shave, apply a moistened alum block to stop bleeding. Alum is a natural mineral that possesses an antibacterial property that can prevent infection from affecting already formed razor bumps.

Apply Tea Tree Oil:

Use tea tree oil to battle the bacteria that can turn razor bumps into infected, inflamed pustules – quite similar to an acne outbreak.

Natural Facial Scrubs:

Removing dead skin cells can prepare hair follicles for the regrowth of hair after a fresh shave. One of the main causes of razor bumps is a clogged follicle that causes new hairs to grow out at an angle. When hairs curl back into the skin – a bump forms and in the worst cases – becomes infected.

Strawberries:

If you mix together a couple of mashed-up strawberries with a spoonful of sour cream and apply to the throat after shaving – you can combat the irritation and redness that accompanies razor bumps. Allow the “lotion” to settle into the skin for ten minutes.

Witch Hazel:

To kill the bacteria that can worsen razor bumps, seek the assistance of witch hazel – a well-known natural astringent that has been proven to solve a variety of skin problems.

Home Remedies

Short-Bristled Toothbrush:

In a gentle circular motion, use a toothbrush with short bristles to ease an ingrown hair out of the bump as a way to ease inflammation.

Diet Change:

Embrace the power of Vitamin C by adding foods (like broccoli, papaya, strawberry, guava, and kiwi) that contain high amounts of the vitamin to your diet. An immune system better equipped to battle the “foreign body” reaction associated with razor bumps will cause skin to heal at a faster rate.

Vinegar – Apple Cider:

Some people have experienced positive results in treating razor bumps by applying apple cider vinegar to irritated skin.

Badger Shaving Brush:

Shaving brushes can help soften and lift the hairs that have grown out at an awkward angle (causing razor bumps). However, many consider the best kind of shaving brushes for the job is the ones made with badger hair.
