I decided to grow a beard, no idea why, just never had one. 1 week in making me nuts.

Update: Getting there, please excuse my ugly mug. I know my left ear is deformed, not much I can do about it.

After a few times of going 'nuts' and shaving; you'll find that it's two weeks before the itch...then three...then...someone hand me a comb.

I've never gotten "the itch". Didn't really know it was a thing. Sometimes if I let the hair get too long over my mouth it dries out my lips though I guess?

Once it get longer, it'll feel softer, itch less. Then the next time you grow it out, it won't bother you as much.

Fight through it. The itching should stop soon.

Put some oil or lotion on your face/beard. The moisturizer helps with the itching some.

Ya that's pubic lice.

You gotta grow up sometime...
Link Posted: 11/20/2014 12:39:15 AM EDT
Growing mine out also. Third time and it has itched less each time.
+1 on the lotion. Just make sure it is good for your face. Nothing worse than a pimple beneath your beard to drive you nuts.

I've only had it for a few days then it passes.

Do you guys get weird streaks of different colors in your beards? I've got some blonde and red in my beard and my hair is dark dark dark brown.

The only time my beard ever itches is if I shave it off, it's the stubble that gets you.

Should be through it soon.

Meh..iv'e had one since 1977. whats this itch you speak of.
Link Posted: 11/28/2014 3:58:48 AM EDT
I know what you mean OP. After 2-3 days I shave it off because I can't stand the itch.

I beat it, it goes away after a while, see my update in OP.

I've found that it helps if you shampoo it.

Really.

You can always tell people Mike Tyson bit it during a wild sex session. It would also explain the itchy face.

Op looks like he keeps a tear stained air mattress in the back of his van.

It's the ratio of top to sides. It's off.

Wouldn't want to run into you in a back alley.

The missing chunk of ear would help to explain the gag.

I tried for a full beard recently for the first time in years. Could not stand the itch. Also some jerk stole all my beard hairs and replaced them with gray ones when I was sleeping.

Dunno yet, will probably keep it fairly short.

Boxed with Mike Tyson eh?
Link Posted: 11/28/2014 11:54:56 AM EDT
the trick is to hit it with a beard trimmer to knock the sharp point on the hairs off that you get from a razor...then, no itch..
Link Posted: 11/28/2014 11:55:01 AM EDT
I think I'm done with letting mine grow out. #3 clipper from now until it stops growing, I think. Just not wild about having a big beard anymore.

The itch is like guitar callouses, at least it was for me. Get over it once, and it's never really an issue again. If you get an itch after that, it's probably dry skin, use some lotion or moisturizer.

Honestly, though, you've never committed to a beard until you shave it off and immediately want to grow it back because you dribble something down your chin every time you eat or drink.
Link Posted: 11/28/2014 12:05:43 PM EDT
It'll go away after a couple of weeks. I haven't shaved since October. Well bottom of the neck so I don't have ugly scruff on the neck but otherwise just letting the chin/cheeks grow in. I've never had my mustache this long, it tends to dip into my cup as I drink
