exfoliate. Get one of those mesh loofahs. At Wal-mart or Target they are anywhere from 1 to 3 dollars. As you wash in the shower or bath use that to lightly exfoliate your area.

I have never found a way, waxing might be better on the growing back end, but I'm just not that brave. What I do is trim with an electric trimmer. I keep it pretty short.

I've been shaving for 4-5 years. Like your face, your genitals will get use to it after a while. Exfoliating helps for sure, shaving every helps and avoiding tight clothes helps as well.

There are some posts out there that suggest some aftershave lotions/rinses - even powders that can help. Do a search there are a ton of threads on shaving with dozens of responses - there is some good advice out there, I just don't remember it all.

Here's one link that I found link

Everyone is different - good luck.

I had that problem until I realized that I'm way too fuzzy of a guy to go down to the skin. Nowadays I just use a hair clipper without a guard.

I agree with Gunsmoke. Over time, your skin gets more used to shaving, so you have less ingrowns and less irritation in general.

To deal with current ingrowns - exfoliation is your friend! I have an exfoliating cloth (looks like a wash rag but is made of a REALLY rough material) that I got at Walmart, and I use that with an exfoliating body wash containing a mild amount of salicylic acid in it.

Ingrown hairs can basically be treated like acne - try not to pick, rather try to stick to regular exfoliating, and they will clear up. It's best to really let them work their way out and then grow out just a bit, rather than picking them and plucking them.

Over time, it should be less of a problem. Mine doesn't even itch at ALL anymore when it starts to grow out.

I didn't have that problem much when I shaved, but now that I epilate or pluck, I have TONS. I have to pick em' out with tweezers. It doesn't hurt, but some of them can get sore a little. I have no darn clue how to avoid them besides not getting rid of hair. However, I have plenty of ways of getting them out.

Oh yea! I have this little scrubby thing for showering. It's not a loofah, but a type of hard-ish sponge. I use it in circular motions while pulling the skin "taut". I do it while taking a really hot bath and it helps move the hairs out that are just trying to grow inward. Lol. Strange, but it does help direct them out of the skin and I'll do it immediately after epilating where I have NO hairs and then I'll use the sponge and have many peaking through the skin. It does help, but not a huge amount.
