About Ingrown Hairs
Sometimes, dead skin can clog up a hairfollicle, which can force the hair inside it to grow sideways under the skin, rather than upward and outward. In men, ingrown hairs often pop up as a bunch of little bumps on the chin, cheeks, or neck after shaving. In women, ingrown hairs are common on the legs, as well as in the pubic area and armpits.
Anyone can get an ingrown hair. But the problem is more common in people who have very curly or coarse hair. Curly hair is more likely to bend back and re-enter the skin, especially after it's been shaved or cut. This inflammation of the skin occurs during shaving and can cause redness and skin irritation. African Americans, Latinos, and people with thick or curly hair develop a type of ingrown hair commonly known as "razor bumps." These little bumps are common on the beard area after you've shaved, waxed, or tweezed to remove unwanted hair. The hair that grows back has a sharper edge, so it can more easily poke back through the skin and get trapped under the surface.
