    Help me please?!

    I have a problem with my under arm hair
    So my skin is very sensitive and dry. I have shaved with Venus Gilette razors because I thought that they would be good quality and better for my skin. But the problem is that I can't shave very often. Once a week is the best that I can do or other wise my skin will be completely red and there's rash and everything. I'm a gymnast so I have practices five times a week and we wear tops so I really don't want my under arms to be all red or even worse to have hair there.
    I have tried somekind of epilators but it hurt like hell so that clearly isn't an option.
    Now I'm thinking that I should Electrolysis or somekind of laser treatment. I'd prefer if I could do this things at home.
    I'm only fifteen so I clearly don't have so much money that I could go to a salon many times.
    Somebody please help me with this!?!?

    (I apalogize for my bad English. I'm from Finland)

    Welcome to WH ersee.

    You could actually be allergic to the deodorant you use, or the soap you use in the shower. It may not be the shaving, that purely escalates the problem. Deodorants for the most part contain aluminum, fragrances, alcohol and parabens — all of which can trigger a rash. You are going to have to experiment with alternative under arms, that are free from these substances

    Same could be with the washing powder used on your clothes that can irritate you.

    With shaving, it can also cause in-grown hairs that can become infected especially if you have dry skin and irritation. Try waxing or use a depilatory (hair removal agent) instead.

    Use an over-the-counter anti-fungal cream or lotion to treat the rash and wear lose clothing around your underarm not tight fitting, allowing it to breathe.

    Speak to your instructor about it as well. Explain it to him/her as 5 times a week training, sweating under there, you may need to wash straight after with a non irritant soap and dry yourself under your arms each time. Constant sweat creates bacteria which creates rashes.
