Every time I shave my legs, I get itchy, red bumps. How can I get rid of them and how can I prevent them?
In order to take care of shaving-related irritations, it's important to know the underlying cause of inflamed bumps. Razor burn, which results from improper shaving techniques, can create a rash-like appearance that usually fades on its own after a few days. On the other hand, it's possible that those razor bumps are the result of ingrown hairs, which are also referred to as pseudofolliculitis barbae.
When shaving, make sure you use a gentle hand. If your problem is simply razor burn, you need to make a few adjustments to your shaving routine in order to reduce irritation and inflammation. To start, soften the hair by soaking your legs for several minutes in warm water. Invest in a moisturizing shave gel-soap doesn't cut it-and lather the shaving area completely. Let the lather sit on the hair for a minute before proceeding.

Definition Most bumps on the eyelid are styes. A stye is an inflamed oil gland on the edge of your eyelid, where the lash meets the lid. It appears as a red, swollen bump that looks like a pimple. It is tender, especially to the touch.

Styes are similar to common acne pimples that occur elsewhere on the skin. You may have more than one stye at the same time. Styes usually develop over a few days and may drain and heal on their own. A stye can become a chalazion -- this is when an inflamed oil gland becomes fully blocked. If a chalazion gets large enough, it can cause trouble with your vision. If you have blepharitis (see eye redness ), you are more likely to get styes. Other possible eyelid bumps include: Xanthelasma -- raised yellow patches on your eyelids that can happen with ...
I have a pretty rudimentary view of the caveman era. I picture men, clubbing women over the head, bringing them home to provide for them and to pro-create , and deciding their women are beautiful when baby is born. I don't think that checking out their woman's vagina was ever on their list of priorities . But then again, they had bigger monsters to fear.
Cut to my life in the land of the beautiful - Beverly Hills - where beauty is a multi-million dollar industry and doctors are apparently creating vaginas that look like flowers , unmasking women's clitoris' (for supposed "better pleasure"), potentiating the G-spot and re-creating virgin-like hymens (I really don't even know why). Folks, you've got too much time and money on your hands if you are looking down there and trying to create some level of " perceived beauty ." And frankly, if a guy's comment about your region, down under, can send you off with such lowered self esteem that you would seek...
