Here are a few remedies to cater this problem. First of all this problem remains for a little while, approximately for a month when you grow your beard. But this not the end of the story, in some cases it goes on for a longer time than usual. All that you can do for this is a little care and that’s it. The first and very basic step to be taken is rubbing on some oil when you feel the itching. You can use coconut oil, baby oil etc. Remember to wash the oil after some time, let’s say after fifteen to twenty minutes. The oiling should be followed by a wash with a shampoo (some mild one) and a head hair conditioner. For conditioners, some petroleum based would do well for you and if not you can use any that is within your reach. Remember to clean your face frequently especially whenever you eat something. You can try keeping wipes to remove any food residue. The food residue causes fungal growth in your chin part which causes itching. So you can even try some anti-fungal creams as well. Or you can simply go for cleansing your face followed by applying a moisturizer.
Hence, your problem solved, things to remember are keep your face clean, maintain your beard, give it a nice trim when it needs, long mustache is never desirable and last but not the least develop some patience the more you scratch the more itching you will feel. Look good in some beardy manner… Feeling cool? Aren’t you!!
