I get a lot of ingrown hair after I get my legs waxed ? What is causing this ? How can I prevent it from happening again ? I am a 20 year old female

When you wax...

Hair_removal
...you are essentially pulling the hairs out by their roots. When the hair grows back, the shafts have to find their way to the skin surface and the ones that can't become ingrown hairs. The solution is to shave, rather than wax. You'll have to do it more often, but you won't get nearly as many ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal will eliminate the hairs permanently, but that's more expensive.

I have been having trouble with razor bumps and ingrown hair , i have them all over my thighs and leg what can i do to get rid of then?

Options

Low_back_pain
only shave after taking a bath or shower so that your skin is hydrated. liberally apply a high quality shaving gel, and only shave in the direction of hair growth (not against). 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.

Laser

Consider laser hair removal but only under a Doctor's care. It does really work (on dark hairs, not blonde/red/gray; and best on light skin.

Small hard red bump on inner side of my lower leg for close to two years. No pain or itching. It's about the same size as pimple or ingrown hair.

Dermatofibroma

This is most likely diagnosis but see your MD or dermatologist for a more accurate diagnosis and suggested treatment

I have this small red tan spot on the side of my leg, I did have an ingrown hair there about6 months ago that I picked,now I'm left with a hard mark?

Dermatofibroma

Ingrown_hair
although I cannot be sure of the diagnosis without the Lesion being seen,it is certainly possible that this is what you have. It is a benign growth that is common on the leg. it usually does not get any bigger. To be sure that I am right, I would see a dermatologist.

red bumps on my stomach. They spread to my chest and then arms and thighs. been in hottub. Spread out, feel like ingrown hair, no itch, folliculitis ?

Could be

Open-uri20121018-20312-czv4s2
It could be "hot-tub folliculitis" which typically goes away on its own if a person stays out of the hot tub until the rash is gone. Rashes are hard to describe and to visualize in words, so a doctor would have to examine the rash to tell what it really could be.
