Keep applying hot towels, especially when it is infected. I wet a wash cloth and place it in the microwave, make sure you do not burn yourself. I wrapped it in another wash cloth and used it that way until it cooled down. The heat will clear up the infection and release the hair. It worked for me.

Here are questions related to Remedies for Ingrown Hairs.
Does anyone know how to get rid of a severly ingrown hair on my husbands back? He has had it for years. It gets infected, we try to pop it and it stinks to high heaven. It goes down for a while and comes back. It does not hurt at all. I am just searching for natural remedies. Thanks so much.
It could be ingrown hairs and nothing more. Try exfoliating with a loofa or nylon shower puff. I had ingrown hairs on my arms and legs until I started using a shower puff, and they cleared up! Try the simple solutions first, and if it still doesn't clear up, go the dermatologist route.
