Skin issues

Skin issues

What are some skin issues that you have now that you did not before diagnosis? I have noticed that I have very bad razor burn every time I shave. It burns and itches terribly. I am way more prone to heat rash and bumps that resemble folliculitis between my thighs. My skin sometimes itches. I get pimple like lesions on the tops of my arms as well as on my chest. And my actual acne seems to have gotten worse. Does anyone else have these problems?

I used the veet wax strips at home and they worked remarkably well. Much longer lasting effect than shaving and less irritation afterwards :)

Omg I have the same exact issue since being diagnosed!!!!! I can't find relief. EOS shaving cream is the only thing thats somewhat helped. Im thinking Im gonna go get waxed.

Hi I have had skin issues since I was DX I get what is call deep skin itching that you scratch but nothing happens my doctor finally gave me some medication for it. I know when I was DX I was told not to take hot showers because it irritates the skin.
Take care

I avoid shaving my legs as much as I can otherwise I end up scratching my legs until theyre red raw. I find keeping a cold aloe Vera gel in the fridge helps sooth them and reduces the itching
