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.
