Home and Natural Remedies for Razor Burn on Arm Pits

  • Sharebar

After removing hair from your underarms, you may encounter a burning sensation, raised skin, and irritated bumps – all signs of the common condition called ‘razor burn.’ While some people battle a mild rash that disappears after a couple of hours, others face a more serious attack that can last for days. To gain relief from the welts and possible infected pustules associated with razor burn, consider the following remedies that come from nature or the home:

Home Remedies

a) Aspirin and Water Mix:

To eliminate the burning sensation of razor burn, try dissolving two uncoated aspirins in a teaspoon of warm water to create a soothing paste. After allowing the paste to sit on the skin for some time, rinse off using lukewarm water.

b) Consider Acne Medication:

The same acne medication that fights pimples on teenagers can combat the small bumps that may appear with razor burn. It is recommended to use products that contain 2.5% or 5% benzoyl peroxide.

c) 1% Hydrocortisone Cream:

You can apply 1% hydrocortisone cream to the arm pits after shaving to combat the redness of razor burn.

d) Lotion:

Moisturize the arm pits when the signs of razor burn appear by using a lotion containing soothing ingredients like aloe vera.

e) Soothe Skin with Diaper Rash Cream:

To lessen the effects of razor burn on the arm pits, apply diaper rash cream to affected areas.

f) Mild Facial Astringent:

Fight the signs of irritating razor burn by using a mild facial astringent to soothe sensitive skin. Products like Clean N’ Clear are considered effective in this department.

g) Dab on the Hydrogen Peroxide:

To soothe the irritation of razor burn that attacks under the arms, apply a hydrogen peroxide-soaked cotton ball for relief.

Natural Remedies

a) Aloe Vera Gel:

Jumpstart the healing process of razor burn attacking the arm pits by applying aloe vera gel after a fresh shave.

b) Tea Tree Oil to the Rescue:

Soothe irritated arm pits by applying tea tree oil after a fresh shave.

c) Treat with Vitamin E Oil:

To treat the signs of razor burn that come after a fresh shave of the underarms, reach for the vitamin E oil, which offers effective soothing and healing relief.

d) Add Vitamin C to Diet:

Give your skin the added boost needed to fight the irritation associated with razor burn by adding more vitamin C to your diet. You could choose to take supplements or increase the number of different foods you consume that contains this helpful vitamin. Try starting your mornings off with freshly squeezed orange juice or ½ grapefruit.

e) Create a Chamomile Skin Wash:

When the arm pits begin to itch after a fresh shave, consider creating a skin wash made from one teaspoon of chamomile and one cup of hot water. Allow the mixture to cool before using. Keep in mind that adding one teaspoon of comfrey or marigold to this skin wash will also boost the healing power of this natural razor burn remedy.

    I have never gotten rid of razor burn but applying the baby diaper rash cream B’s Butt Paste (on the title) works great at soothing irritated skin.

    Avoid wearing tank tops when you have razor burn/bumps on underarms until they have healed. Wear cotton shirts with sleeves as often as possible.

    I tried Oatmeal lotion and baby wipes, they both burned. Later I tried Baking Soda with little pain relief. I thought of the diaper rash cream, it helps when my husband is outside and gets hot and his jeans rub and cause a rash. I tried it and it has helped. This is my first time with this problem, in this area. It is very painful. Thanks for the other tips, I may be trying them tomorrow.
