  • Papules (round bumps)
  • Pustules (pus-filled bumps).
  • Hyperpigmentation (skin around ingrown hair becomes darker)
  • Pain on touch
  • Itching
Although ingrown hairs can occur on anyone’s body, some individuals are more prone to having them. Those that have thicker, curly hair develop more ingrown hairs than those with lighter, finer hair. The pubic region is prone to ingrown hairs, because pubic hair is thicker and curlier than hair on the head and arms.
Human skin has hair shafts that allow hair to grow up and out over the surface. When shaving, it is possible for shortened hair to curl back under the skin and continue growing. The body sees hair growing on the inside as a threat and so that is why itching, redness, and swelling occur.

Waxing or electrolysis for the pubic region can help an individual to remain smooth while avoiding the hassle of ingrown hairs. Both hair removal treatments are less likely to cause ingrown hair problems.
