You can also help the situation by manually removing the ingrown hairs with a needle nosed tweezers. Always sterilise first with rubbing alcohol and then apply a warm damp cloth on the area for 15 minutes. Then individually remove each ingrown hair out of its follicle. Using a magnifying mirror greatly helps this process.
