1.  Get your friend to shave.
2.  Apply one percent hydrocortisone, which is over-the-counter, twice a day to irritated areas.

Good luck.

I get razor burn on my legs very easily, and I read about trying 1% hydrocortisone cream.  Just a light film will do.  I apply it right after I towel off, and I have none of the itchy, burning sensation or the red marks the next morning.  It has worked wonders on my legs!
