Bikini Itch?

I find that if I shave in my bikini area I end up really itchy afterwards. It doesn't matter if I don't shave super close, even just a trim leaves me itching and uncomfortable! I don't develop a rash or redness or any symptoms and I avoid soaps or anything that might cause irritation. Any suggestions for what to do instead?

The only thing that will help is to either shave daily.  Where though do you have most of your irritation?

Maybe you should wax instead?

You may want to  try bikini zone, even if you aren't getting a rash it helps with the itching. I would be worried about shaving down there everyday as that can cause more irritation since it is such a sensitive area. Also, when you shave use some conditioner, it will help soften the hair and cause less irritation.
