What can I do about insane Razor Burn on my legs?

First of all, I HATE shaving my legs so, I try not to do it as much as possible. However, I have to, because of the apparel I wear both at work as well as what I wear during my free time. Every time I shave my legs, I get the most insane razor burn about 2 days later. It looks terrible and feels even worse! I have VERY thick hair and my skin is typically dryer than normal. I have had skin issues for years because of the quantity and thickness of my hair. I have always used a Woman's Daisy disposable razor along with shaving cream every time I shave my legs and underarms, but my underarms have never been affected the way my legs have been. Am I doing something wrong? Are there any reasonably priced alternatives? What about tips on how to treat it? I hope you can help me.
