Ingrown Hair

An ingrown hair occurs when a hair that has been shaved, waxed or plucked grows back into the skin instead of out of the hair follicle. This can cause irritation, redness, and in some cases, infection.

To prevent ingrown hairs, it’s important to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and keep the skin clean. You can also try using a sharp razor and shaving in the direction of hair growth to reduce the likelihood of hairs curling back into the skin. Additionally, avoid wearing tight clothing that may rub against the skin and cause irritation.

If you already have an ingrown hair, you can try using a warm compress to reduce inflammation and encourage the hair to grow out of the skin. Gently exfoliating the affected area with a soft-bristled brush can also help to release the hair from the skin. Avoid picking or squeezing the area, as this can lead to further irritation and infection. If the area becomes infected or develops into a painful cyst, consult a dermatologist for treatment options.
