Patient Comments: Ingrown Hair - Experience

Please discuss your experience with ingrown hairs.

Comment from: My Problem, 19-24 Male (Patient) Published: April 16

I first shaved back when I was 13, and I got an ingrown hair that never stopped bothering me in the pubic area. Seven years later, it's still there and it grew to the area around it. I've tried many treatments and none seem to work. I was able to take one huge hair out, but it was only once and with a knife, looked like my own hair (on the head, it had been “in-growing” for five years). I really want to get rid of this. There are more than three that have appeared on other parts of the pubic area and I can't find any solutions.
