Dear Baby T - I am guessing that you are talking about the hair growing in after shaving and causing pimples. Some people do not do well with shaving - try waxing ( eina!) or using hair removal creams for sensitive area ( test first on a small patch of skin) OR shave with a electric shaver rather than a blade. If you get a pimple - see if you can pull the hair out and put Bactroban on it.
