(background) I get a lot of problems with ingrown hairs on my face where I shave. In particular, I get occasional thickened hairs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span>
get stuck in my skin
and get very sore
and resemble a black dot. I usually can free and ingrown hair with a needle or tweeze one that
has formed a plug and after intial irritation and soreness they heal
One particular area has been causing me problems for about 8-9 months. One day after shaving I discovered a small lump under my chin area.
