Beard burn is the irritation of the skin that happens when skin comes in contact with coarse facial hair. Beard burn on the chin is relatively common after kissing a man with a beard for a long period of time, and several products that help relieve beard burn are available over the counter. To eliminate the chances of getting beard burn from kissing a man with a beard, you can ask him to shave regularly. If that's out of the question, stock up on a few items you can use whenever you start to feel the beginnings of beard burn.

  1. 1

    Soak a washcloth in cold soy milk, and apply it to your chin for five minutes. Soy milk contains ingredients that help fight inflammation.

  2. 2

    Rub cool aloe vera gel on your chin to help alleviate the irritation.

  3. 3

    Apply 1 per cent hydrocortisone cream to your chin twice a day for two to three days after getting beard burn to relieve itchiness.

Tips and warnings

  • If possible, avoid using acne products containing salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide or retinoids for a few days before kissing a man with coarse facial hair. Using these products may accentuate the effects of beard burn.
  • If you have beard burn that doesn't go away after a few days, see a dermatologist.
