    Tea tree oil on the spots. The most intensive moisturiser you can find on the whole area. If it's not til tomorrow that you'll be getting some, reshave the area, leaving it as late as possible before you get laid & ALWAYS apply an intensive moisturiser (ie the ones you get with bikini line creme) after shaving.

    What kind of moisturiser did you use?
    And what kind of shaving gel?
    Also, a nice fresh razor is a good idea

    I think I see your problem.
    A normal moisturiser isn't enough. You need a really intensive one.
    As for the shaving gel, men's are better (& cheaper!). Try one for sensitive skin & you should be fine.

    Tip for future, dont shave it too early, do it the day you want it smooth as it doesnt last long at all.

    Do it in the morning - you don't want it to have all night to grow & develop nasty red blotches.

    Personally if i did that i would end up worse as the little spots end up broken then. It depends how bad it is, mine does get quite rashy & i couldn't really shave it the next day. Hard to say, everyone is different.

    I find that the blotches go away when I re-shave.
    But please, get yourself a better moisturiser & half the fight will be won.

    Get a moisturiser for sensitive skin, one that has no perfume in it. Otherwise the perfume will make it sting/itch more.
