Razor Burn is an uncomfortable rash that develops on the skin after shaving too harshly, or with an unsharpened razor. It causes red, highly irritated bumps, pimples, dry skin, inflammation and soreness. Symptoms can last a matter of hours to a few days in more severe cases. Scarring is also possible. The term "razor burn" is often used interchangeably with the term "razor bumps," although the latter is a side effect of one's initial rash. The razor can leave skin raw, tender and infection-prone. A bacterial or fungal infection may then present in the hair follicles, or small sacs beneath the skin from which hair develops and grows. This causes small, itchy pimple-like shaving bumps. Such hair follicle infections are also known as folliculitis.
A razor burn rash or razor bumps can develop anywhere on the body, although the most common locations are on the scalp, neck, face, arms, thighs and bikini area. Razor burn can best be prevented by wetting skin with warm water before shaving to soften hair, and using a clean, sharp razor.
