  • Bikini line hair removal - help!

    Basically, my problem is that I have tried pretty much all kinds of hair removal for my bikini line and cant seem to find anything that doesnt make it come up all red, itchy and sometimes the little red bumps get infected - yuck, i know. (

    I have tried:

    Shaving (with and without shaving gel; disposable raazors, sensitive razers etc)
    Waxing (home and professional)
    Hair removal cream (all brands, nair, veet etc and all the sensitive type)

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I could try??


    Thanks so much in advance! )

  • Consult a board certified dermatologist for answers.

    They should be able to provide you with the best thoughts or plan.


    • What about laser hair 'removal' ?

      I say 'removal' in quotes because it's really not removing, unless you go back numerous times for treatment of the same areas, but more like thinning.

      I had a bunch of it done on my back (male) and it thinned it quite nicely.

      Just a thought.
