    Default Ingrown Hair proper removal?

    I have an ingrown hair on my leg and I heard its best to leave it alone, however I cant help taking my tweezers and picking it out and plucking it. Although it hurts sometimes, its very hard for me to resist.

    Is there any proper way to remove them?

    you can use a salicylic acid pad daily on area. this prevents the skin from growing thicker over the hair. in a few days you will see the hair show thru the skin. you can pluck it then and use bacitracin or polysporin to keep it from getting infected. you are damaging your skin when you dig with a needle or tweezers.

    I'm also agree here. Waxing is really a good option to make your skin more bright and healthy.

    I've also found softening the skin by applying a flannel soaked in very warm water onto the area for a few minutes, then plucking.
    But this is just my preference.
