    Razor burn

    Hi, I wasn't sure if I should put this in the vocab section of the forum or here.

    But I was wondering what the Russian phrase for "razor burn"(the pain/redness after shaving sometimes)

    I am wondering it its a simple word for word translation or if the pain isn't "burn" but something else.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not a man, probably, they have a special word for it.
    But I'd say it's "раздражение", which goes for any kind of skin soreness. If you don't want any misunderstanding and when it's not obvious from the context you may specify: "раздражение кожи после бритья".

    "Боль бритвы" or "бритовая боль"

    Not a mile close.

    Is my phrase understandable?

    Yes, perfectly!

    I would have said "Your miles out" but I like the way you put it better.
    More madness than method but it works for me.

    So, is this the Welsh-type English that you understand and Americans don't?
