Yesterday it was so itchy i had to put hydrocortizone on it. It worked. Today, it's still itchy. I have a feeling they are ingrown hairs, because the little hairs are seen through the skin. But i popped one with tweezers and it came out yellow ish. What is this?

Hi Kfir,
Since you shaved and now have the dreaded razor rash....the itchy bumps and zit-like bumps are common. You can usually squeeze them like a zit also which will release the yellowish fluid and this again is common. Be careful that they do not get infected but otherwise, time will heal the skin back to normal.

You can save yourself a lot of pain and anguish by using an electrical razor instead of a regular hand razor and if you do shave with a regular razor, be certain to use a lot of shaving cream…

I hope this helps.
