What is the recommended medication for ingrown facial hair?


Answer by  Kaichia55 (74)

There is a product used for ingrown hairs sold in grocery stores. Skin Tight is relatively cheap and works really well. They have different versions of Skin Tight. I would recommend the sensitive skin version first before moving on to anything stronger.

There are a couple of solutions for ingrown hairs. The first is to apply a dab of any type of acne medication to the hair. You can also use Follique or a shave aid.

You can tweeze the ingrown hairs. Alternatively laser therapy or electrolysis may also work. It may be painful however, but it will be effective.

Basically you want to be taking vaniqa to cure this problem. You can also use a home remedy made of turmeric and gram flour. Then you will apply this to the face and scrub towards the direction of hair growth.

Topical medications and preparations such as Oxy 5 or Proactiv may be used to treat from "the outside in". To treat from the "inside out" there are many options. One fairly "non-annoying" option is Doxycyline. This medication can cause upset stomach, increased risk for sunburn, and variety of less likely side effects, but it is effective.

Well a recommended medication is actually called vanica. You can see if that works for you. There are some side effects on that. You can not use if it you are having any type of critical medical condition or whether you are pregnant or not. Therefore, you have to be careful using this.

For ingrown facial hair you can try laser hair removal, because it targets even the ingrown facial hair, you cannot shave or wax it.

Honestly the best thing you can do is get someone to help you get it out with a pin and then shave it off. If ingrown hairs are a problem shave frequently.
