Razor bumps are not just red and unsightly. They can also be painful. Regardless of which symptom is most severe, all razor bump sufferers want to get rid of the bright, painful rash as quickly as possible. Follow these instructions to take away the pain and redness in minutes, using items you're likely to have around the home.
Things You'll Need
- Mild liquid soap
- Aspirin tablets
- Two spoons
- Small cup
- Cotton swabs
- Vitamin E oil, aloe vera plant or aloe lotion
Wash the area with lukewarm water and a mild liquid soap, if the skin is not already clean.
Crush two aspirin by placing them in the bowl of one spoon, and pressing the bowl of another spoon into the first spoon. Crush the aspirin as finely as possible. Put the crushed aspirin into a small cup and pour in a couple of spoonfuls of warm water. Stir the mix together into a watery paste.
Use cotton swabs to gently spread the paste over the razor bumps. Allow the area to air dry.
Rub the area with a soothing agent such as vitamin E oil, aloe lotion or gel squeezed from an aloe vera plant. If using oil or lotion, rub a small amount onto the area and allow it to be absorbed into the skin. If using an aloe plant, cut off one of the leaves and squeeze the gel directly onto the bumpy area. Spread the gel around with your fingertip and allow it to dry on the skin.
