HNT: Scrum Pox

Designer stubble. Don't you just love it?

George Michael, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and, of course, my Ruf. However, such facial adornment comes at a cost to the women in their life. That damn stuff can cause a real reaction in the skin of the ladies it is rubbed over.

As you can see from the picture, the skin of my body is just as susceptible to the allergy as that on my face.

Within a short while of starting to kiss, my nose and chin have become quite tender from the prickle of those emerging hairs. The only thing that prevents my skin from becoming covered in the sores of scrum pox is liberal application of aloe vera gel to cool and soothe. Ruf has attempted to time his shaving regime so that I get the optimum amount of bristle-free action but his stubble starts to reappear within a couple of hours so it is a very exact science.

And then we discovered the clippers. You know, the ones that are used to shave skulls. I have often helped Ruf to administer a Number One to his own head and I love the contrast between his shaven head and the longer beard hair. So it occurred to Ruf that perhaps this could work on his beard too. There is still an optimum length, but it lasts a lot longer than the difference between clean-shaven and spikey and the overall improvement as far as discomfort is concerned is well worth it.

I have the same issue. How can he resist, though, even with your sensitive skin?
