Ingrown hair, also known as razor bumps or pseudofolliculitis, is a condition in which a hair curls or grows back into the skin instead of growing outward. This can lead to the formation of painful, red bumps or small, pus-filled lesions around the hair follicle.
6 causes for ingrown hair:
- Curly or Coarse Hair
- Improper Shaving or Hair Removal
- Clogged Hair Follicles
- Tight Clothing
- Excessive Sweating
- Ingrown Hair Scarring
At a medical center specializing in dermatology or skin care, the following solutions for ingrown hairs may be offered:
They are products that often contain active ingredients that target skin to exfoliate and reduce inflammation, helping to release trapped hairs.
This treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layers, revealing fresher, brighter skin underneath that helps in preventing ingrown hairs from forming.
For individuals who experience chronic ingrown hairs in specific areas, laser hair removal can be an effective solution as it reduces hair growth and the likelihood of ingrown hairs.
