In brief: It will grow out...

...By itself. Don't pick or squeeze it; that will just make it worse.
Warm compresses often help. Prevent further ingrown hairs by shaving with an electric razor, or a single-blade hand razor. (multiple-blade razors shave too close to the skin and create the conditions that promote ingrowing of hairs.).
