In grown hairs.
I have lately been getting "what looks like" ingrown hairs when i shave my armpits.
I have just bought a new razor, so is it still cause of the razor or could it be from something else.

How else can i resolve this problem.

Dear Bee
this could be contamination from the razor - just disinfect it and ensure that it dries properly after shaving. Treat the infected areas with Bactroban ointment or Fucidin.
