Treatments for Razor Bumps on Chest

In order to achieve the kind of chest that shines with smoothness, it is suggested to follow the tried and true suggestions associated with performing a clean, healthy shave. The objective of hair removal using a razor, shaver, or blade is to cause the least amount of irritation to the skin. If you should encounter an unfortunate rash of pseudofolliculitis barbae (‘razor bumps’) – fight these pimple-like eruptions of the skin with some of the following treatment options:

a) Lift Embedded Hairs:

To treat razor bumps, you can use a clean needle to release an embedded hair shaft to promote a growth pattern that emerges out of the skin straighter and in a less irritating manner. It is also suggested to cease shaving for a bit of time. This method of treatment is typically known to stop razor bumps from developing further (depending on the severity).

b) Apply Over-the Counter Cortisone:

If you wish to speed up the healing process and ease the irritation of razor bumps, consider applying an over-the-counter hydrocortisone product to affected areas.

c) Pause on the Shaving:

Press pause on shaving the chest to allow razor bumps to heal. Continuing to remove hair in this region will only cause further irritation.

d) Laser Hair Removal:

When razor bumps have become a serious issue, it is sometimes necessary to permanently remove hairs from affected regions. In this case, laser hair removal has become a rather effective method in treating pseudofolliculitis barbae.

e) Seek Out Active Ingredients:

When treating razor bumps, consider products that contain active ingredients, such as salicylic acid – which helps to calm down acne breakouts and other skin irritation.

f) Rely on a Local Antibiotic:

To ease the symptoms of infected razor bumps, using an over-the-counter antibiotic has been known to bring results.

g) Don’t Pick or Squeeze at Bumps:

You risk increased irritation, infection, and scarring if you make it a habit to pick at or squeeze your razor bumps.

i) Witch Hazel:

Consider using products that contain allantoin, azulene, and witch hazel to treat the redness and swelling associated with razor bumps.

j) Local Antibiotic:

Clear up razor bumps on the chest by purchasing an over-the-counter antibiotic.
