Ingrown hairs

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. David Boyd is treating ingrown hairs.

They often occur on areas of skin that are shaved daily like the face, arm pits, legs and bikini area.

These are thinner hairs that have a hard time growing out of the skin.  It can lead to painful  bumps, irritation and even infection.

You can prevent ingrown hairs by using a fresh razor when shaving. If an ingrown hair occurs, plucking the offending hair with tweezers may help.
