What do I do about the ingrown hairs that have already formed?  – Donald in Orlando, FL

As for the bumps that have already formed, try using a sterilized needle or tweezers  to gently pull the hair out of the bump or swollen area.  But, be careful not to remove the hair entirely, as this could cause the ingrown hair to recur.

Also, to quicken the healing process, try a solution that’s designed to heal and prevent ingrown hairs from forming (ex. 3-in-1 Post Shave, The Cool Fix & Bump Patrol).

These steps should definitely do the trick!

    Great advice Craig. Another helpful tip is to take a hot shower or use a warm compress before using the tweezers. The heat will cause the skin to soften bringing the hair closer to the surface and making it easier to remove..
