Tendskin!! it stings at first but works great, here's a recipe:
solution 1:
18 tablets uncoated aspirin, crushed
5 oz. rubbing alcohol
combine.

solution 2:
8 tablets uncoated aspirin, crushed
2.5 oz. witch hazel
combine.

combine the two solutions. the aspirin will settle a bit, so shake it before use. apply to the bikini area to prevent ingrowns. it can also be used to spot treat blemishes. (aspirin is acetic and salicylic acids.)

another trick that works wonders for the bikini line to prevent ingrowns is unscented roll on deodorant.



THANK YOUUUUU
i seriously love you for this
i'm going to the pool w/ my bf and some friends on saturday and i DEF didnt want to  have ingrowns and weird stuff down in my bikini area! hehe  Smiley Wink

I came here to learn about soap making, etc and now I'm posting about my underarms! Huh

I have VERY sensitive skin. Fortunately, my underarms aren't too sensitive. Firstly, Dove deo for sensitive skin isn't that good if you have a prob with the aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydex gly. It contains a % very close (within 1 or 2 %) to the avg deo. It just moisturizes the skin more b/c of other ingredients. I *think* Tom's of Maine offers a true senistive skin deo. I wanna say I've seen it for around $5. Not sure if it contains the chemicals OP is trying to avoid.

The breast cancer risk is still debated, but I applaud you being cautious. 

I recomend skipping the shaving for a while. Maybe a week or 2?? Moisturize the skin and exfoliate gently with a mild facial scrub (IF it isn't too irritated to do so). Then go back to a routine of shaving with a fresh razor and lubricated skin. Also, try to hold the skin taut as you shave.

I sometimes get 2 or 3 biggish red bumps. Mine are b/c the underarm hair grows in so many directions. I shave both up and down. It's impossible to shave in the "right" direction b/c there isn't one. Mine are mildly ingrown hairs that I painfully pluck right after showering. (They appear immediately after I shave and I can see a tiny hair in there.) Yours may be that or razor burn. This should help with either though.

This may sound weird ,but I swab my underarms with toner after I shave.  Yes, the kind you use on your face. Ever since I started doing this I have not had the bump problem. Its like an aftershave for your pitts.

I tried the toner thing last night. It worked like a charm. No bumps, no irritation, no nothing.
Thanks so much Jera!

Ingrown hairs are caused by bacteria (I've been told) so I have been using a moisturizing antibacterial gel on my bikini area. It works great, and the rubbing alcohol in the gel stops the area from itching, which is not very flattering!

I'm not totally sure what toner is but i'm guessing that its a kind of cream(that tones)

but i have a similar idea and it helps ,when i bath or shower, i wash my underarms with a light exfoiliator and sometimes shave with it too,then afterwards rub facial moisturizer onto my underarms and then try not to wear any material under my arms until i know that the cream is fully absorbed so that none of it comes off onto my clothing.

i find that it works on my underarms as well as bikini line.

I had the same problem, then I tried laser hair removal.  It can be pricey, but even after 1 treatment I had less hair and no more red bumps! I've gotten a few treatments now and shave the few hairs that come back now about once a month.

If that doesn't sound up your alley, I would recommend exfoliating the area a few times a week, I liked the idea of the witch hazel too.

Otherwise waxing might help.
