    Default How do I properly remove a bad ingrown?

    I have an ingrown hair near my bikini line and it HURTS so much! What can I do to get rid of it? I am scared to touch it because its inflamed and tender. Any secrets of getting rid of this?

    if you don't want to go to the doctor which i would recommend. apply hot compresses to the area. use alcohol to disinfect area. take a needle that is sterilized either by burning the tip or dipped for a few minutes in alcohol. slowly puncture the top of the inflamed area and pull the hair out with a pair of tweezers that has also been sterilized. the whole hair follicle wil come out. root and all usually. remove any pus with a sterile swab and put some anti bacterial cream or ointment on it. keep using the antibacterial until there is no sign of infection. if it stays red and irritated get your hiney to the doctor.

    it seems the the hair follicle is infected with bacteria and inflammation is going on,i think its better apply some topical antibiotic like mupirocin if its very small and allow the inflammation to subside ,after that u can go for incision and removal of your hair for further getting infected in the past using very sterile method.
