Shaving is a problem: Try clipping hairs with scissors to avoid the 'burn' from a razor which can cut off the hair too close- then it becomes an ingrown hair or folliculitis as you describe. Yes, clipping hairs will take longer, but if you want to avoid this problem and keep the 'lawn' mowed- that's what I would recommend.

What could cause tightness/pain in central left back (area appears to be swollen too) - it has lasted almost a week.?

I am having some tightness and pain in my sternum area. I used to be able to stretch and get it to pop out, but can't this time. What can I do?

Not a Heart Attack?: Nate, Hopefully this is not a heart attack. If you think it might be, then get to the hospital. If you are sure that it is not. Continue stretching, take an anti inflammation medication like Aspirin or motrin, given the location of the pain, I would suggest aspirin. You could try warm or cold compacts as well. Physical therapy could be a solution as well. Try a chiropractor. ...Read more

Sufferer of tight, achy neck & upper trap. Usually when stressed. What types of exercise are best to strengthen those areas & alleviate tension/pain?

Neck and shoulder: neck and shoulder rolls and stretches can be very helpful. Doing resistance exercises for the neck and shoulders with either exercise band for the neck and/or weight for the shoulders can help strengthen these muscles. Relaxation and deep breathing exercises can help with stress and anxiety. http://www.self.com/fitness/2015/02/stretches-relieve-sore-neck-sitting-all-day/ ...Read more
