(i am a female) so i like to stay nice and clean of course down there but i find that every time i shave and whenever the hair grows back in i get super itchy. i'm afraid to put lotion on such a sensitive area. the only thing that kinda relieves it in bikini zone gel.
so would it be only because the hair is growing in?

It's normal. What you can do to minimize the itch:-shave every day in the shower, if possible after you've been wet for a few minutes as this tends to soften the skin and hair-use a 3 or 4 blade razor, it gets as close as possible and minimizes stubble-use lotion or conditioner as shave cream-rinse & dry your razor blade up and keep it airing to minimize bacteria; if you must put it away, disinfect it with alcohol or Listerine-dry your area with a clean towel (blot dry) and do not use lotion, powder, feminine spray, and allow your bottom to dry completely before putting your panties (cotton of course) onIf you decide to grow out your hair, it will be itchy for a few days. A mild topical anti-itch cream should get you through (don't use hydrocortisone as that might trigger a yeast infection). Refrain from scratching as you might get an infection which would be harder to clear up.I hope this helps you.
