Ingrown Hair: Causes, Cures, and Prevention

Ingrown Hair: Causes, Cures, and Prevention

Ingrown hairs are the worst.

If you wax or shave anywhere on your body, or if you have thick, curly hair, you're more more likely to experience ingrown hair.

The good news is you can treat and prevent them without intrusive procedures like lasers or chemicals. But first, let's start with what they are.

What are ingrown hairs?

Ingrown hairs happen when hair grows back into the skin instead of above the surface. This happens when you shave, wax, or pluck your hair. 

Ingrown hair causes small round bumps called papules, and sometimes pus-filled bumps called pustules. Hyper-pigmentation, itching, and pain also occur around the area.

What causes ingrown hair?

When hair is removed, it usually grows back. Most hair grows back out of the hair shaft without a problem. But sometimes the hair curls back under the skin, or the hair never grows above the surface. This is especially true for people with thick, curly hair, particularly with pubic hair which tends to be more coarse than anywhere else on the body.

When the hair is trapped under the skin, the body responds to it like a foreign object, thus the symptoms.

Natural treatments for ingrown hair

  1. Stop removing hair. I know. We remove hair for so many reasons. However, ingrown hairs only occur where hair is removed. If you stop removing the hair, it won't need to grow back. Thus, no ingrown hair.
  2. Apply a warm compress. This helps to reduce swelling around the area. You can also try gently rubbing a warm washcloth or toothbrush in a circular motion over the skin.
  3. Gently remove the hair. Use sterile tweezers to gently pull the hair out, but only once the area has healed and the hair has emerged above the skin. Don't dig into your skin to retrieve it. Removing the hair before the skin has healed completely could cause the skin to heal over the hair and another ingrown. And breaking the skin could cause an infection.
  4. Exfoliate. Exfoliating around the area removes can help the hair return to the surface. You can do this with a body scrub or one of our sisal washcloths.

Herpes has been one of the most significant virus in the US now, and its spreading really fast, and the government are only producing medical drugs that can suppress it but rather keep on eliminating the African herbal doctors who were able to discover a way to completely cure the virus…I’m delighted to be finally cured of herpes 2 after i applied doctor Oyagu herbal medicine for two weeks ,,, I can tell you, I went back a month later to confirm my status and i was still negative.. If i could get cured, why do you think You can’t?, you believe in the lying government and medical scientists and keep spending money on buying their stupid pills.. I’m glad I am finally cured from it forever…apply oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com herbal formula.

I really want to thank Dr marsu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr marsu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr marsu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2348143813120 or email drmarsuofficial@gmail.com
