Sounds like razor burn.

Get yourself some quality shaving cream or use lotion on your legs after you shave them.

Could be the shaver. Sounds like you have sensitive skin! Try using shaving cream for sensitive skin as well as a different razor. After shaving, apply lotion that will soothe your legs to avoid the itch.

Its the razor scraping your skin that causea the irritation. Along with the irritation yo umay also get suceptible to infection of the shaved skin and hair follicles. Use a mild steroid cream after you shave. Use only a thin layer on your legs because we do not want any to get absorbed systemically. Try Betamethasone dipropionate cream after you shave. Two days of using twice a day is enough.

I have the same problem. I use Gilette Fusion Power razor - the vibration seems to better protect my skin from the razor. Be sure to get a good quality shaving lotion or soap for sensitive skin - none of the girly ones at the drug store work for me, they all irritated my skin or gave me razor burn. And all the girly razors are horrible, too. Right now I am using a homemade soap that is full of aloe and shea butter, etc. I use to use pure aloe gel to shave, that worked great. Just look for very, very mild and gentle soaps full of natural ingredients (again, shea butter, aloe, cocoa butter) - or you could research some good shaving lotion online for sensitive skin, but you will be looking to pay $10+ for them.

Finish with a gentle lotion. I personally use Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Moisturizer. The fact that it would be gentle on sunburns told me it would be great for my freshly shaved legs. It's full of shea & cocoa butters, botanicals and aloe vera. And it smells amazing. I've heard that Jergen's has some great lotions, too.
