    I have several rather large razor bumps in my bikini area. They've been there for over four months and aren't going down at all. Is there any way I can get rid of them without seeing a doctor? I stopped shaving already where the bumps are.

    Your first step should begin with an effective skin care regimen that includes exfoliation ,Hydration and Nutrition(for your skin).Razor bumps may be attributed to ingrown hairs and an accumulation of dead surface skin cells .Also look for products that are preservative free, if you have very sensitive skin
