I have multiple sclerosis, poor sleeping, a weakened immune system, am overweight, with facial hair growing in varied directions on my neck. I have been dealing with horrible ingrown hairs recently that look like huge lumps now and they scar if I do anything to them. Never dealt with this before and I'm at a loss. I use a charcoal and apricot facial scrub.

I have suffered with ingrown hairs for years. I've tried all the lotions and potions to no avail. However, there are two things that work; no shaving; and the extractor tool. They let me try one in exchange for feedback. I was skeptical but it works! You have to follow the directions, but the tool has removed all of my ingrown hairs/razor bumps. I plan to buy one when they launch their store next week. I want one for my face, and one for my body.

I tell my clients to use a foil blade shaver like the Hair eRazor to prevent ingrown hairs. This type of shaver cuts hair under the foil and eliminates the irritation that is a key factor that causes this problem.

I first shaved back when I was 13, and I got an ingrown hair that never stopped bothering me in the pubic area. Seven years later, it's still there and it grew to the area around it. I’ve tried many treatments and none seem to work. I was able to take one huge hair out, but it was only once and with a knife, looked like my own hair (on the head, it had been “in-growing” for five years). I really want to get rid of this. There are more than three that have appeared on other parts of the pubic area and I can't find any solutions.
