So shaving down will make the hundreds of little ingrown hairs go away?

In brief: SHAVING DOWN

Shaving down will prevent new ingrown hairs.
The ingrown hairs that are already there will disappear by themselves. If you think these are infected, use an antibacterial soap twice daily and apply neosporin ointment at night to these.
