Hi, thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern regarding painful ingrown hair bumps that you are having. We will try our best to help you.

Generally, ingrown hair is a common condition that results from hair removal. It can cause pain, tiny bumps, and inflammation in the area where the hair was removed. An ingrown hair often improves without treatment. However, if the pain still persist, you might need to see a doctor to weigh in your symptoms and provide you the best treatment.

This is because, chronic ingrown hairs may lead to serious complications such as:

  • Bacterial infection (from scratching)
  • Skin darkening (hyperpigmentation)
  • Permanent scarring (keloids)
  • Pseudofolliculitis barbae

You are recommended to speak with our doctor via teleconsultation who can assess your symptoms and offer further advice.

We hope this answers your questions. Thank You
