Ingrown Hair?

It is very difficult to assess if this is an ingrown hair based on your photographs. I suggest consulting with a board certified dermatologist for further evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer

Ingrown Hair?

Looking at your pictures, it is hard to tell. I would try some warm compresses to the area and see if you see a follicle in a few days trying to grow. if there is a tiny bump that forms, it might be an ingrown hair. I would have your physician look at it to make sure. It is just hard to tell in a picture. Good luck!
