Treating an infected ingrown hair

You simply know you have a problem when you wake up with itching skin that is an angry red and swollen.

The worst is to wait for the hair to come to the surface like in the photo.

You can add heat and moisture to the area to hasten the process. Apply a washcloth and hot water.

The heat draws the hair to the surface and the moisture softens the skin so the hair can grow through it.

If it doesn’t happen on its own, you’ll have to play doctor and “operate”.

Sterilize a thin, sharp needle in alcohol or boiling water. Carefully open the skin to let the hair and pus out. Remember the antibacterial ointment afterwards.

Don’t tweeze the hair out, but rather cut it short with a scissor. The skin will take a few days to heal. When it is healed it is the right time to start with some skin exfoliation to ensure other hair won’t follow suit.
