Razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae) also known as barber’s itch, shave bumps, folliculitis barbae traumatica, and scarring pseudofolliculitis of the beard, are formed when the new hair growth curls over and enters into the neighboring skin. This produces a foreign body reaction resulting in an unsightly bump. Shaving causes the ends of the hair to be sharpened thus making it easier to penetrate the skin. Razor bumps itch and burn which make shaving nearly impossible. Razor bumps can be most commonly found on the face, legs, arms, pubic region, head, neck, and shaved areas.
