These painful, itchy, and red bumps occur when sharp edges of the facial hairs curl around and simply start growing back into the skin after they have been removed with tweezers, waxing, or shaving. In some instances, a clogged hair follicle could cause the hair to grow sideways rather than upward, resulting in that sharpened end of the hair penetrating and growing under the skin. Soon after that, the surrounding skin will become red and swollen. Inside the bumps, you will notice a pustule or papule with a hair in the center. The severity of the symptoms may vary depending on your genetics, overall health, and lifestyle. The other things that will determine the symptoms of ingrown hairs are the way facial hair grows into the skin, the presence of an infection, and how deep that infection is.
