Razor Bumps in Orlando, FL

Razor bumps, known in the medical community as pseudofolliculitis barbae (in the beard) or folliculitis, are itchy, irritated bumps that may develop on your skin after shaving. Razor bumps are especially common in men and women with coarse, curly hair, but anyone may experience them anywhere they shave. They develop when stiff hairs curl back into the skin, causing a reaction from the body. There are many over-the-counter shaving products that might help with razor bumps, but these are not always effective and can sometimes irritate the skin in other ways. If you struggle with acne-like outbreaks after shaving, reach out to Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics to learn more about how we can help you deal with ingrown hair and razor bumps. We can offer prescription-strength products to soothe your skin or laser hair removal treatments to help you avoid this problem altogether. Get started today by scheduling your skin care consultation at our Orlando, FL practice.

We offer several options for razor bump treatment at Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics. Salicylic and glycolic acid can both be effective in healing razor bumps by exfoliating the skin. We can also recommend creams and other skin care products that are designed to prevent razor bumps and other forms of inflammation. If you'd rather avoid the problem entirely, we may be able to perform laser hair removal as a long-term solution. Your recommended treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the area you want to address and your skin's overall sensitivity. During your initial consultation at our Orlando, FL practice, our dermatologists will perform a thorough skin assessment and devise a treatment plan built around your needs.

The most common and noticeable symptom of razor bumps is the occurrence of acne-like bumps in the skin after shaving. These bumps may have a small hair in the middle, indicating the presence of an ingrown hair. Some of the other symptoms of pseudofolliculitis barbae include:

  • Itching and irritation around the affected area
  • Scarring
  • Redness and swelling
  • Pustules that might resemble pimples

Dr Grayman genuinely cares for her patients. She takes the time to listen and is very knowledgeable. I’ve been to 2 dermatologist about a scalp condition but she was the first doctor to demonstrate sensitivity, understanding, patience, and provided a treatment plan that actually gives me some hope. Thank you again Dr Grayman.

I started seeing Dr. Grayman in March for my hair and alopecia. In the last several months my skin has cleared and my hair is filling in. I'm very happy with the care I've received and her staff is great never once have I felt rushed. She is a direct communicator which I love. I specially sought out an African America dermatologist and she is more than worth the wait. I have had to wait in office once or twice but I wait anytime I go to the Dr. It happens. Patience and kindness goes a long way.
