Is the swollen bump a pimple or an ingrown hair? A pimple is a clogged and infected pore. An ingrown hair doesn’t pop through the skin but still grows and becomes infected. If you shave and get a bump, chances are it’s an ingrown hair. Alpha constantly has ingrown hair because he shaves so much. He’s grown accustomed to it. To prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate.

Ingrown Hair Treatment
- Apply a hot compress – wet a washcloth and microwave for 15 seconds. Hold for a few minutes to open the pores. The infection comes to the surface.
- Exfoliation – gently exfoliate to stimulate the follicle. Use a soft bristled toothbrush or exfoliating brush for about 2 minutes
- Sterilize a needle or pin in alcohol. Get the needle under the skin and break the hair to the surface. Wipe the skin with alcohol.
