After starting my gender transition, I had to start shaving my legs. The first time I used a razor and shaving cream, I broke out in a horrible (and I mean horrible) rash and had razor burn so bad I couldn’t even sleep. Large purple boil-like bumps developed that didn’t go away for many months, until I finally had to go to the doctor to get prescription cream. Needless to say, I never tried that again. I now use an electric razor to trim the hair, but of course it’s not a close shave and my legs feel all stubby. Fortunately, time and hormones have softened the hair some, but I do have a problem in that I cannot get a close shave and don’t know what other method to try. I’m afraid to try waxing/depilatories in case they cause another bad reaction.
