Some people react after using electric hair clippers to cut public hair. Some will however not react to traditional shaving razors. Here, it is all about the try and error method to find what works best for you.

Aftershave creams/ oils

Aftershave creams have also been reported to cause allergic reactions to the skin when used after cutting of intimate hairs. This is because some of them contain very strong fragrances and ointments that easily react with the skin until your body gets used to them.

Dirty hands

In the same way eating with dirty hands causes hygiene related infections, shaving with dirty hands leads to rushes and pimples. This is because, during shaving, your skin is left with open cuts and sores which if touched with dirty hands leads to infections caused by dirt.
