Can putting makeup on a razor burn cause infection?

so I have this razor burn under my eyebrow and I thought maybe putting foundation on it to cover it up but will it be a bad idea because of it causing infection?

Putting make up on a razor burn can indeed cause infection. You should leave the razor burn area open without applying anything so that it recovers naturally. You can also apply an approved cream to the affected area. Check out http://www.ehow.com/how_8669525_cure-razor-rashes.html.

yes, putting anything into an open area on the skin can cause an infection. it probably won't feel too good either.
