Thankfully I don’t get any of this. If I did, I think I would find an alternative it shaving. It looks too uncomfortable to deal with

Perhaps people are confusing hives for razor burn or another kind of rash. I’ve never even heard of that. I have gotten hives from an allergic reaction before but unless you’re allergic to shaving cream or water, I don’t see how it would happen. Exfoliate, shave, and moisturize. Pretty easy. 

If people insist they get hives, then that’s cool too.

So I posted that I get hives when shaving.  

I don’t get it on my legs (though they do get really dry and quite itchy if I don’t moisurise A LOT after shaving my legs) but yea….  my armpits look like I have rubbed stinging nettles under them if I shave them.  Raised, red, hot, itchy.  It ‘goes down’ after about 12 hours, but it is red, sore and itchy for about 48 hours, by which time it’s starting to go dry….  more itch…  and the stubble is coming through again!  Nightmare!

With waxing I get a small red rash that itches for about an hour then goes

If only it was 🙁  I don’t know what it is that my underarm skin doesn’t like in the shaving process, and it’s only been in the past 2-3 years.  It’s pretty annoying

I get yeast infections and shaving spreads it.  The yeast then gives me eczema.  It sucks, but it’s not hives.  I’ve been to dermatologists and they say that it’s chronic and will never completely disappear.

@RenoSweeney24:  It’s controllable at least, but I’ve never without at least a small spot of it.  When it gets really bad I just don’t shave.

I do get annoyed by the cost of razors though.  I was told the more blades the better.  I don’t reuse them.  I use one/armpit.  It gets expensive.  I’ve also had laser hair removal and that seems to kill the yeast as it improves shortly after.

This would be a really bad flareup for me:
