MEN'S FACIAL TREATMENTS
Q: WHAT CAUSES INGROWN HAIRS?
In-grown hairs or pseudofolliculitis barbae(PFB) is a type of folliculitis (inflammation of the follicle lining) affecting the beard area due to infection with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. It occurs both in men who shave and in men that do not shave. It occurs where the hair is shaved or plucked, including axilla, pubic area, and legs. It is also known as shaving rash or razor bumps.
Pseudofolliculitis barbae is due to shaving, particularly close shaving—because the cut hair may retract beneath the skin surface. It can also occur in skin folds and scars. It occurs mainly in people with curly hair because the curl of the hair means that the sharp pointed end of a recently shaved hair comes out from the skin and re-enters the skin close by causing a foreign body inflammatory reaction. The injured follicles are highly susceptible to become infected, causing folliculitis barbae.
To remedy this condition: Treatment for pseudofolliculitis barbae depends on the severity of the condition. If possible, let the beard grow for 30 days to eliminate ingrown hairs. When ready to shave again, take the following precautions:
Ensure the skin is well moisturized.
A good scrub will exfoliate the surface skin cells and reduces the likelihood of new inflamed spots.
Aim to have a 5 o’clock shadow immediately after shaving. Shave less frequently, e.g. every other day.
Either use a single blade disposable razor or use electric hair clippers or a razor with an attachment that leaves the cut hairs long.
Shave in the direction of the follicle, not against it. Do not stretch the skin.
Sterilize metal hair clippers and electric razors using boiling water, and plastic items should be soaked in an antiseptic solution.
