"An ingrown hair is essentially a clogged pore with irritation, usually caused by shaving," Dr. Berson explains. "Use a toner or cleanser containing salicylic acid, which will help unclog the pores and prevent future breakouts. If it is more severe, go see your dermatologist, who will prescribe an antibiotic." To avoid ingrown hairs, use a razor like the Schick Intuition, which has a built-in Skin Conditioning Solid, you don't need shaving cream. Also, shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
