Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The bumps after shaving appear due to minor cuts that occur due to too close shaving. Best advisable thing is stop shaving and try depilation or some hair removal cream. After shaving apply some antiseptic cream in the area and lather well with soap before shaving.

Bumps on my testicles for over years. It reduces some and some time bulges. But over a year its neither shrinks nor bulges but I want to get rid of it. It may be caused when I shaved my private part using an uncleaned razor when I was a teen. Please advise. Thanks in advance.

Dear Doctor, This is really embarrassing but I don t know why, but I constantly have bumps on my private area. At first I thought it was razor bumps, but I rarely shave and the bumps never go away. I believe one of the bumps is a cyst because it s the size of a cyst. I m not sure, can you please help me?

Every 3-4 days, a raised, itchy rash will appear somewhere on my 12 year-old s body. Never in the same place. First it was on buttocks, then hands, forearms another day, shins a few days later. Yesterday it appeared on his wrists, knees and cheeks. It is alleviated in a matter of minutes after administering separate dosages of prednisolone, Zyrtec and Zantac. The hives first appeared May 10 after a day spent in the woods with friends. He may have rubbed a Bounce dryer sheet on his body to deter insects. But the rash will not completely go away and we are almost out of the prescription. Any thoughts?
