but this is a few days after i have shaved, not the day of :S. you know when the hair starts to grow back out? i also have larger labia minoras too so maybe that has something to do with it?

I've had my legs and bikini area waxed a few times, and each time the aesthetician has told me to make sure I exfoliated any area that was waxed, otherwise ingrown hairs were a possibility (which itch terribly).

I'm sure that similar issues can occur with shaving, so try a good loofah sponge and some kind of exfoliating body wash (something with the scrubbing beads) and see if that helps during that time.

Good luck!

I get this too and I have small labia; so that's got nothing to do with it. I have found that lotion helps (yes, even several days later). Another tip is to just shave again when it gets itchy.

About all you can do is shave again. You could try Vagisil to keep the histamines from flaring up, but it's not likely to help much.

I've found that shaving again after they first begin to grow again, when it gets itchy, seams to increase the chance of getting ingrown hairs on by body. I just let them grow out a bit; that way it doesn't itch as much as it would if I continually shaved.

your vagina is inside you so you wouldn't be shaving that. if you mean your labia are itchy from razor burn you can try tea tree oil after you shave.

I would definitely NOT suggest using tea tree oil on one's labia. Tea tree oil is a very potent essential oil, and while although it can work miracles on one's scalp or feet, it can cause severe burning and irritation when used on such sensitive areas. If you use tea tree oil on your labia, it's bound to make its way inside you...and you'll be sorry. Try something else.

TEA TREE OIL- God's Gift To Women
If you have razor burn, you might try using a shaver/trimmer for bekiny line. Only just use the trimmer bare, there is no itching at all, and yes you can still feel the hair but at least it's cut down to were you can't see it. Also, tea tree oil on a cotton swab works for razor bumps. Also, if you get a yeist infection / bacterial vaginosis a lot, put tea tree oil 4 drops on a que tip and insert all in there. Tea Tree oil is anti-fungal. It's from a tree, all natural, and won't hurt you. Trust me I do it all the time. I have recurring yeist infections due to after sex. I HAVE to do that it totally works ladies. It feels great and were a panty liner to bed when you wake up you'll get a nice surprise! Tell me if you were daring enough to try it! Do research if you want, but try it once and you will be glad I told you.

Also, if that doesn't work. Douce with two drops of tea tree oil in 2 cups of water solution. Rinse three or four times after that with water. Get's rid of yeist infections like you would NOT believe.

Hi everyone, I shave my wife, and straight, after use plain old ordinary skin repair, works all the time and can be used for the regrowth period as well. Be a little bit liberal with the skin repair and all itch will go away. Works on blokes too. Cheers Remus1234

I shave my wife's vagina all of the time. The trick to make it not itch is baby powder. Believe it or not but this works !

Wash the area with cold water and a mild soap prior to shaving to help contract the pores so they won't get clogged with scraped skin cells. A few hours afterwards thoroughly clean the shaved area with an antibacterial soap to lesson the damage done to your someone tender skin with the razor. Avoid over moisturizing the skin in that area while keeping it shaved as it can cause dryless or desication of the skin.

i find it hard to believe that a doctor would spell the word "doctor" wrong.
but idk..maybe those methods could work, but im not buying the whole doctor thing.

oh & my sister bought this stuff to prevent razor burns from a "Passion Party" Its like in a spray bottle and that seems to work for me. Just use it right after you shave. and im sure theres a website for the passion part thing if you really want the product..but you might end up having to like host a party or something. idk
good luck.
