    Your arms, I assume you are saying? Well, it seems like the skin is sensitive to any king of abrasive activity ot chemical product.
    Have you tried waxing? Maybe you should...on a small patch first. If even that does not work, then maybe you should see a skin specialist. And listen, in case you do have to live with hair, be cool. Its perfectly OK be be 'en natural'!

    agree with this completely! Waxing should work fine though being natural sounds pleasing to the ears even. Some stereotypes regarding fashion has creeped into peoples mind, like removing hair

    i wouldn't ever shave my arm. i mean, it's just not necessary! if u shave ur legs then that's good enough. most people leave their arms alone. anyway, if u still want to... yeah try some other product then. make sure it's made for sensitive skin.

    If you wear sleeve less shirts etc. only then you should shave otherwise hairs are natural in arm pit and they should be kept. Hairs works as absorbant under arms. When they are removed, there is no absorbant to clean impurity being released by body which is causind ****les.

    Its nto for arms alone, but some people have this kind of allergy for facial hair too... try waxing or threading.
    Or in complex cases u can try laser methods

    Hi

    Follow these steps to learn how to shave your arms without bumps.

    Be sure to change razors or cartridges on a regular basis, a dull blade can lead to nicks. Also, it's best not to borrow your guy's razor. His hair is coarser and will dull a blade. (Plus, don't men typically hate it when women borrow razors?)

    Clean the areas to be shaven. Work up a lather with a mild cleansing soap on a washcloth or in both hands. Use one hand to smooth it over the area being prepared for the razor. Make sure to cover the entire area and moving beyond the shaving parameters to provide a little extra room for error. You can lather both legs or armpits at the same time before shaving first one and then the other.

    Instead of soap, use shaving cream. Try a specially-made formula for women's bodies with a gentle cleaner that is easy to use and apply. Some brands come in a particular scent if you prefer, or you can use one without perfume. Squirt some into your hand and then lather it over the parts to be shaven. Using soap or shaving cream will help you see which sections of the parts awaiting the razor have not yet been touched.

    Use a sensitive skin razor if you tend to break out after shaving. These are packaged as separate types of razors at the store, so read packages carefully to get this type if you want it. Some are single-sided while others have two sides; most are made of plastic sheaths with steel blades. They are less apt to tear or scrape delicate skin, although many women shave with regular razors and experience no problems.

    Use short, upward strokes to hair beneath the soap or shaving foam. On your legs, you may prefer to use long upward motions. Check your soap-covered parts with a hand-held mirror after shaving to see if you have missed any sections, then finish these as well.

    After shaving, discard disposable razors or clean and re-use the permanent kind. Rinse the shaved body parts with clear water in the shower or using a wash cloth. If you find any stray hairs, get them now while your skin is still moist. Check for nicks, scrapes, or cuts and clean them with peroxide or anti-biotic ointment, applying a bandage if necessary to stop the bleeding or to promote healing.

    Avoid using cosmetics, lotion or creams on shaved areas for 8 to 12 hours. This will give skin abrasions time to heal and help to prevent irritation that chemical applications can cause on tender skin following shaving.

    If your skin shows signs of irritation the next day, try a different soap or shaving cream, as you may be allergic to some of the ingredients. Be sure your razor is clean and ready for the next use if you don't discard it. After eight hours, you can wear deodorant under your arms or apply lotion to your legs to keep them smooth.
