In brief: Flagyl

Flagyl is usually prescribed for bacterial and protozoan infections and not for ingrown hairs.

In brief: Unfortunately no

Metronidazole is a great drug for bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas but will not help for ingrown hairs which are not infected bacterially.

In brief: No

Metronidazole is primarily active against anaerobic bacteria and some protozoans so it is not effective for skin infections.
