Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into this problem of yours sometimes itching may result after shaving due to dryness . Since you give history of having problem only on one side and no rashes , redness etc. it is very less likely to be an allergic reaction .

I will advise you to put a moisturiser over the affected region . Lactocalamine lotion is a soothing agent to be applied there after . An antihistaminic like levocetrizine 5 mg will reduce the itching . If it still persists then you need to see a dermatologist. In my opinion you can talk to your family doctor regarding this before taking these medications to look if there is no contraindication .

Take care.
