  • Possible ingroing hairs

    hi,
    i've noticed some discomfort whilst shaving recently and tonight i have hairs that it looked like i had missed with the razor , but they will not come free.

    i used my tweezers to try and free them to pluck them out and both ends of the hair are under the skin.

    is there anything i must do ?

    I'm not sure what you can do - just keep an eye on them.

        Quite right - I wasn't thinking there was I.

        There is a nasty problem called pilonidal sinus which some Dr's think can be caused by in growing hairs at the bottom of the spine. This then leads to a horrible infection, often requiring surgery to drain the abscess.

        I know lots about this, because I've been in hospital 3 times with it.
