How do I treat the wound from ingrown hair so that it will not recur? There seems to be an infection because the area where hair is supposed to grow is swollen first and has pus with blood

Treatment: Simple cleansing with soap and water followed by a topical otc antibiotic ointment at least twice a day should help healing. If it worsens, oral antibiotics can help. Ingrown hairs may be the source so if this becomes a recurrent problem, consider laser hair removal. This is possible if the hair has some pigment to it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
