Make sure you use a brand new or at least very sharp razor each time you shave there, and make sure to use a good moisturizing cream, and not just soap. Start by shaving in the direction of the hair growth and then if you need to, you can very gently shave in the opposite direction. Make sure to use a gentle moisturizer on the area afterward.
