Question For The Blokes - Non-Restrictive!

One of the strange changes I've encountered since I quit is shaving. My face has become incredibly sensitive and sore, since there is no change in my technique or style I can only put it down to the quit. Thing is I don't know why - any ideas or am I the only one experiencing this. Maybe it's the same on ladies legs and stuff.

    Wow, you're easily pleased;)

  • Can't say I've experienced this york. Are you sure you are still using a razor!?;)

  • Seems an odd side effect, but it could be something to do with blood vessels being less constricted, increased blood flow to the skin etc - I would go and buy yourself a super-sensitive shaving balm and see if that does the trick. If it is anything to do with the quit, it'll likely wear off soon.

  • Nope, that's definitely a strange one!

    I had TERRIBLE mouth ulcers, the worst cough I can remember ever having but no sensitivity.
