Re: Hairy armpits!!

Hello girls, I've used an electric razor since long before I had my rads and have continued since (was advised not to shave at all during rads though) and have not found any problems. Have also noticed that there is very little hair growth in armpit on rads side. Best wishes, Pat xx

Re: Hairy armpits!!

I think it's mainly about whether you have much sensation in the area. If it's a bit numb there's a good chance you could cut yourself with a wet razor without noticing.

I got a battery operated Phillips Ladyshave. It's got a trimmer on the edge so that cuts off the longer hairs and then the foil sorts out the stubble. Works really well.

Hairy armpits!!

Yes, I know, not really important in the grand scheme of things, but is it wise to avoid shaving forever?

I know they say use an electric shaver, but are they safe. Also do you need to cut hair shorter before using?!
