Ingrown Hair Treatments
Most people experience ingrown hairs, also known as pseudofolliculitis barbae or razor bumps. Ingrown hairs happen when the end of the hair shaft is shaved very low, curling back into the same hair follicle as it grows.
An ingrown hair irritates the skin. It produces a raised, red bump (or group of bumps) that looks like a little pimple. Sometimes an ingrown hair can form a painful, boil-like sore. In men, ingrown hairs often pop up as a bunch of little bumps on the chin, cheeks, or neck after they've shaved. In women, ingrown hairs are common on the legs.
