Ingrown Hair (Definition)

Our hair follicles are meant to erupt and to grow straight out of the skin. Often, a hair may turn into the channel out of which it should grow, and penetrates the skin, causing swelling and irritation. This may happen because of blockage or with very curly hair.

Why is it that my legs get ingrown hair bumps?

Use a high quality multi blade razor, and replace it frequently. If this does not eliminate the problem see your dermatologist for additional prescription options. ...Read more
