I hope that anyone out there can help me.
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.

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.
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.
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.........
It has to be a large beard. I have to hide my second chin
I was actually planning to shave it of if the itching hasn't stopped next week.
I just hate walking around looking like a smoot baby ass in my face.
Quoting BristolFlyer (Reply 10): I'm pretty sure it'll fit, whether or not it'll suit you is another matter
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
Quoting Go3Team (Reply 13): I could have sworn you were going for that look at the CPH meet.
I did. But I shaved it of because it was itching so much. But now I wanted to give it a shot again
Quoting L-188 (Reply 15): You know Dan Haggarty went bald in his later years.
I know. But at least he got bold in his later years. I get bold before I turn 30
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.

Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 1): Try rubbing a light cortisone cream into your face if it's a real bother.
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.
