has anyone tried laser hair removal instead of shaving? I have about 10 flair ups in my pubic/groin/thigh area. I avoided shaving for months but I finally did and now it's worse

    I did several laser hair removal sessions with my armpits. For me, it lessened the hair enough there isn't a lot and I also haven't gotten a flare in that specific area since I did a few treatments. It's been about 8 or so years. Shaving is the worst thing you can do for hair removal, in my experience. I find that waxing is better than shaving too.
