What is Ingrown Hairs?
Ingrown hairs tend to occur when hair curls back and becomes trapped under the skin. It starts growing back sideways instead pushing up through the surface, appearing as raised red spot or bump.
This condition is prevalent in both men and women and most commonly found around face, armpit, head, neck legs and pubic regions. People with coarse, curly hair are particularly prone to this issue.
What causes Ingrown Hairs?
Ingrown hairs are mainly caused by:
- Improper hair removal techniques (for e.g., shaving too close to the skin or friction caused by waxing, in the same area, repeatedly.)
- Can occur naturally, when excess dead skin blocks the follicular opening.
