Treatment of Razor Burn on Neck

  • Sharebar

When removing hair from the neck, there are many factors working against you that can cause a less than perfect shave. The direction in which you shave, ingrown hairs on the neck, and skin sensitivities will all contribute to whether or not you will suffer a case of razor burn – a widespread condition for shavers that causes the skin to become red, raw, irritated, and raised. Becoming familiar with the following treatment options for the neck can help lessen the amount of time you have to deal with the ‘burn.’

Razor Burn Treatment

a) Become Familiar with Over-the-Counter Products:

When looking to solve your razor burn rash problem, look for treatments offered in the skin care aisle of your local pharmacy. Products, like Sheseido Men Toning Lotion and Jack Black Post Shave Cooling Gel, use ingredients such as rosemary, sage, and other non-oily substances to provide relief from redness, swollen skin, and irritation.

b) Natural Treatments and Remedies:

The neck is pretty sensitive, meaning a natural treatment is a great way to combat the irritation that comes with razor burn. Soothe the skin with selections, such as tea tree oil, vitamin E oil, and lavender oil – which promote the healing process of inflamed skin.

c) Post-Care Routine:

Today, there are plenty of cooling gel products and moisturizing skin care selections perfect for fighting the signs of razor burn.

d) Create a Home Remedy:

You never know what you will find within the comforts of your own home that can combat the appearance and signs of razor burn on the neck. Try applying a moistened tea bag to inflamed skin to ease the pain. Fight off harmful bacteria by using apple cider vinegar. Grab a bottle of witch hazel and use a clean cotton ball to dab on for antiseptic assistance.

e) Apply an Ointment or Cream:

A great treatment for shavers with sensitive skin is to apply a thin layer of an over-the-counter ointment or cream (like Polysporin) to the neck to fight the effects of razor burn.

f) Aloe Vera Gel:

You can ease irritation, reduce swelling, and promote healing by applying aloe vera gel to your razor burn. The analgesic properties of this natural treatment also provide you with protection throughout the day.

g) Use Hydrocortisone Cream Sparingly:

Fight the redness of razor burn by applying 1% hydrocortisone cream to the neck after an irritating shave. The hydrocortisone constricts blood vessels, causing less blood to flow to affected areas. In the end, you suffer less redness

h) Try Products with Allantoin:

Consider the power of allantoin, a common ingredient used in face creams and other skin care products, which is also an extract from comfrey. When irritation and redness have attacked the neck after a fresh shave, consider this form of treatment to heal your razor burn problem.

i) Alum Stick:

Stop nicks and cuts from bleeding on the neck when you use an alum stick to combat some of the signs of razor burn. This natural mineral contains antiseptic components that will help calm razor burn.

    There are two treatments I have discovered work in different ways. The first of which is pretty obvious–Dessitin. That is, zinc oxide, or butt paste. This stuff does WONDERS at cooling instantly and although messy (apply at night), it gets rid of nasty razorburn almost overnight.

    The second thing that works surprisingly well and it seems really counterintuitive is…Oxy. That’s right, benzoyl peroxide vanishing cream dries up those little bumps that get irritated and perpetuate the cycle of irritation. It seems like more moisture would be better, but trust me–it just works. It’s cheap and if it doesn’t work for you, you haven’t lost much. Dry shaving works very well in the neck area because when you use water, lotion, cream, soap, etc, the razor isn’t getting the hairs efficiently and on your neck, they go in all crazy directions. With a new, SHARP blade, it’s much easier to shave the neck and avoid irritation. It’s something with which you must experiment. Good luck.
