Razor Burn on Throat

  • Sharebar

The curves and shape of the throat create the perfect conditions for irritation of the skin when a shaver attempts to remove hair. A stinging sensation and itchiness often accompany the common occurrence known as razor burn. With an appearance that can capture a great deal of attention when at its worst – it is suggested to become familiar with the typical causes.


Razor burn can last for as little as a couple of hours (bringing mild redness) to a few days, where the redness is often accompanied by raised skin, welts, scrape marks, nicks, cuts, and infected pustules – all of which depend on the severity of the condition [1]. Sometimes the rash stretches across the throat as a smooth patch of irritation, while others are greeted by a collection of tiny inflamed bumps that make up this uncomfortable rash.


In order to avoid the redness and discomfort that razor burn can bring, consider the following causes:

a) Using Lengthy Shaving Strokes:

Make sure to use short shaving strokes when removing hair from the throat to avoid the razor burn that comes when too much pressure is applied.

b) Morning Shaving:

Shaving the throat first thing in the morning can cause razor burn because of the bodily fluids that have puffed up your face throughout the night. If you wait at least 20 minutes, the fluids will have dispersed – allowing you to reach a closer shave.

c) The Direction of Shaving:

If you have a habit of shaving in the opposite direction of hair growth, you will increase your chances of suffering razor burn.

d) Stretching the Skin Taut:

Razor burn can occur on the throat when a shaver stretches their skin while removing hair from this part of the body.

e) The Condition of Your Shaving Equipment:

Shaving instruments that are unsanitary, rusty, dull, or old can cause razor burn to attack the throat after a fresh shave.
