Naturally I would encourage you to pick up that razor and go for it. However, before you do, please make an appointment with a Dermatologist. Fully furred or shiny bald, that red scalp needs some professional attention. Being Sly wouldn't make the red go away, it will just make people wonder what's wrong with your scalp. Please do this. There's also this, if you've already got an inflamed scalp, a razor might aggravate the problem. Let us know what the Doctor says and, again, don't go any farther until you've seen one.
