Every summer/bathing suit season I have gotten terrible razor burn from shaving my bikini area. This year I decided to forgo this torture and waxed. It did well for a week. It's been over 30 days now and I have the most painful rash in my bikini line area. It doesn't look like ingrown hairs, not huge red bumps this time, just red, swollen, dry and bumpy and terribly painful. FYI: Divorced, not sexually active, stopped wearing panties 2 weeks ago thinking maybe I was allergic to the elastic in the panties I was wearing. When I walk it feels a little like I have rug burn. I've tried Cortaid, my child's diaper rash ointment, vaseline, GoldBond powder. Nothing is relieving this. Not going to be able to get in a bathing suit without shorts on this year unless something gives.
