To help prevent skin irritations, folliculitus, and other skin problems associated with shaving, women should keep three razors labeled A, B, and C. A is for Armpits, B is for Bare legs, and C is for Crotch. Follow this rule, and there will be no cross-contamination of armpit sweat or leg grease to parts of the body that might be more sensitive. This will prevent chafing, itching, bumps, and lesions. — Leah Flore, APRN, FNP, Charlotte, Vt. (170-4)
