I am growing a beard at the moment. I wanna see if it fits me.
But I have a big problem! It itches like hell!  
Has anyone of you grown a beard where it itched so much? If the answer is yes dod you do anything to get rid of the itching?

What I'm planning to get is something like a Grizzly Adams beard for a while. Is it worth saving up that much beard or will it be annoying to run around with?

And no this thread isnt ment as a joke. I am serious.

Try rubbing a light cortisone cream into your face if it's a real bother.

Thomas: It drove me nuts when I was younger, but it has basically gone away over time. By that I mean years - it doesn't bother me much at all now. It also helps a bit for the beard to get a little longer. The itch should lessen after a week or so. Westy's advice is good too, although I'd be reluctant to follow any advice of his that involves rubbing cream on any body part.  Wink

For years I've grown a beard, shaved to a moustache, shaved it all off, gone back to a beard, then a goatee...give it some time. It sure beats shaving.

Baby lotion or Aveeno lotion. Aveeno is great for things like bug bites and chicken pox, so why not for an itchy new beard?

I'm only guessing, as I'm a girl and have never tried to grow a beard but I have a kid and Aveeno or baby lotion worked on rashes and itchy things when she was growing up...

Then it better be a large beard!  duck 

Just grow a week and shave three or four times and then let it grow with regular trimming.

If it still causes you distress go ahead and declare yourself a woman and shave it off.........

I'm pretty sure it'll fit, whether or not it'll suit you is another matter  wink .

I have only ever got as far as about 5 days worth of growth before having to shave it off, too much itching (especially at night lying on the pillow).

The itchiness goes away. Have had mine for over 14 years. It goes from trim to Grizzly Adams to mountain man. It just itched for the first few months.

Try using shampoo on it and a conditioner. That might help too.

Good luck.

Beards......GOOOOOOOD!!!!

Thats what I wanna find out as well. Some people say that I look better with beard because of my second chin. And growing a beard is much easier than lose weight  Wink

Allright. So here are the status. I got the great news today that SAS wanted to see me for a job interview. So I have trimmed it so its very short now. So The itching is gone. And if I get the job with SAS I probably wont be allowed to have a huge beard.

It is the only cream that works for me, I use it almost every day, especially after I shave. It works wonders and is very cheap.

My suggestion, find yourself a trimmer and keep it to a length that doesnt bother you. I have a goatee, as my sides can get incredibly itchy after a few days growth. The same occurs for the rest of my beard, it seems that it has preferred lengths, and when it goes a little past it, it starts itching, and that is when I trim and shave it.
