It seems that having unwanted hair wasn’t enough. When you shave, wax, or epilate you may have ingrown hair. Those hair are growing sideways into the skin or curl back down and grow into our skin instead of growing up. Sometimes those little demons can be painful and they lead to irritation around them.
