How to deal with razor bumps and ingrown hairs

Razor bumps or ingrown hairs cause Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB)

Razor bumps are ugly sores or pimples caused by bacterial infections. They are found in the beard area of the face, around the jaw and on the chin and neck.

Generally it is men with curly hair in particular who suffer from razor bumps, this is due to the nature of their hair growth. This creates problems when the hair grows back on itself causing "in-grown hair".

Ingrown hairs occur when the cut hair curls back and grows under the skin surface.

The re-entry of the hair creates a space where bacterial infections thrive and the result is a sore or pimple - a razor bump.

A bad shaving technique can aggravate an already existing condition and spread infection to other areas of the face.

The best way to minimise the development and spread of razor bumps is to discover, through trial and error, a shaving technique or method of hair removal that is appropriate to the sufferer.

Many sufferers of this painful irritation discover great relief using a revolutionary formulation that helps deal with ingrown hairsAmerican Osteopathic College of Dermatology study of Pseudofolliculitis Barbae most effectively.
