Privé MEDSPA Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs also known as razor bumps, razor burn, hair bumps, shaving bumps or Psuedofolliculitis Barbae (PFB), is a condition where the hair curls back or grows sideways into the skin causing inflammation. It may or may not be accompanied by an infection of the hair follicle, or razor bumps which vary in size. While ingrown hair most commonly appears in areas where the skin is shaved viz. beard, legs, pubic region, it can appear anywhere on the body.

Ingrown hairs are more common among people with very curly hair. Most ingrown hairs occur in the beard area and ingrown hairs are very common in people of color.

The most common symptom of an ingrown hair is inflammation of the skin, followed by pus formation. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. The symptoms of an ingrown hair may resemble other skin conditions. Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis.
