An ingrowing hair results due to hair shaft deformity which makes the hair curl, penetrate back into the skin and get trapped there. The trapped hair gets infected causing a condition called Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. On the surface, it appears like tiny red bumps with a characteristic black dot (the trapped hair) in the centre. On touching the skin surface feels rough & grainy like sand paper. This is seen in men on the beard area and in women on arms and legs. Any method of hair removal, shaving or waxing, that cuts the hair too short can cause it.
