In brief: Ingrown hairs

If you have ingrown hairs try not to wax, shave or pluck hairs until healed.
This can often heal without treatment. Your physician can prescribe medication to clear dead skin cells (retinoids). Steroids may be used for significant inflammation & antibiotics may be considered if the area has become infected.
