I have ingrown hair in my pubic area. I'm a 19 year old female. I was wondering how can I remove it?

In grown hairs
Two things can really help: 1. using a solution with gylcolic acid can help exfoliate the skin and prevent ingrown hairs; or, 2. IPL treatments for permanent hair reduction (if you want to eliminate that hair) can also be a solution. If you change to breathable, 100% cotton undergarments, you may also reduce the problems as synthetic undergarments can trap more moisture and lead to more ingrown hairs.
Hope this is helpful!

I would definitely invest in laser hair removal for ingrown hairs. The laser will remove the hair and then you will eliminate the problem. Best, Dr. Green
