Does anyone have chronic skin problems, such as when shaving legs  you're skin explodes into being itchy and inflamed for days? It doesn't seem to matter what kind of razor/wax/nair/etc. I use.
I also have keratosis on my upper arms and upper legs, which seems to be getting worse.
The doctors can't seem to diagnose me. I'm about to go crazy!! I wonder if any of this could be lupus related?
Any thoughts?

Hi Jen . . . I have sensitive legs, but seem to do ok if I use a new razor each time. I'm bumping this back up in case someone else might have some ideas for you. Sorry you haven't gotten more responses.
