Health Tip: Understanding Ingrown Hairs

(HealthDay News) -- An ingrown hair occurs when a strand of hair grows back into the skin, usually after shaving, waxing or tweezing.

Symptoms of ingrown hair, according to the Cleveland Clinic, include:

  • Skin irritation
  • Small bumps with hairs in the middle on the face and neck
  • Pain
  • Itching

In a condition called pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps), hair that has re-entered the skin triggers small bumps to appear on the face and neck.
