Treatment of Razor Burn on Nipples

  • Sharebar

Removing hair from the nipple region usually isn’t a widespread topic of discussion; therefore many shavers usually aren’t up to speed on the most effective and less irritating methods of tidying up this part of the body. Rushing through the process, using the wrong type of equipment, or ignoring pre- and post-care are just some of the ways you may encounter a nasty case of razor burn.


When razor burn attacks the nipples, a red, irritating rash often spreads across the region. Depending on the source of your discomfort, a shaver may encounter raised skin, welts, or bloody nicks, cuts, and scrapes. The skin surrounding the nipples is sensitive as it is, so most hair removal processes will cause some degree of discomfort – whether it lasts for a couple of hours or for days. Sometimes, bumps form in the same area as the razor burn. It is not uncommon for an individual to suffer infected pimples or blisters. Another symptom of razor burn is itchy skin, which only makes the entire experience an uncomfortable headache.


Razor burn has a knack of attacking parts of the body that are already irritated, meaning don’t shave if you already show signs of redness or inflammation. Other causes of this common condition include:

a) Your Shaving Method:

The method you decide to follow when removing hair from the nipples can cause razor burn. A few common practices include shaving in the direction opposite of hair growth, using repeated shaving strokes, and applying too much pressure.

b) Alcohol:

Individuals that apply alcohol to the nipples after a fresh shave run the risk of drying out the skin and increasing irritation.

c) Scrubbing and Scratching:

The risk of further irritation and infection increases when you scrub or scratch the skin after a fresh shave.

d) Disposable Razors:

Some razors wreak havoc on sensitive skin, causing instant irritation and razor burn. However, an electric shaver allows many people to adjust the setting for a less irritating shave.

e) Re-Irritating Skin:

If you are already suffering from a case of razor burn or any other skin irritation, you will only increase your symptoms and risk infection if you continue to shave the nipple region.
