Ingrown Hairs

Medical Dermatology - Ingrown Hairs

An ingrown hair is a hair that curls and penetrates the skin with its tip, causing inflammation. Ingrown hairs are more common among people with very curly hair. Most ingrown hairs occur in the beard area.

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 physician for a diagnosis.

An ingrown hair often heals on its own. However, in the case of chronic ingrown hairs, treatment may include:

  • allow the hair to grow longer

  • depilatory (to remove the hair)

  • electrolysis (to remove the hair)
