How do I get rid of ingrown hairs?

Try this method to gently ease them out of your skin:
  1. Soak a clean washcloth in warm water.
  2. Press the washcloth against the ingrown area for three minutes to soften the hairs.
  3. Using sterilized tweezers or a needle, gently work out the ingrown end of each hair one by one.
  4. If you can't easily treat a hair, don't force it.

Can you just leave an ingrown hair alone?

If you get an ingrown, it's best to leave it alone until the bump and redness disappear. Dr. Gross recommends using a warm compress, and eventually the hair will grow out on its own. You should also hold off on grooming the area (that means waxing, shaving, and plucking) until the ingrown has cleared up.
