I don't like having a lot of body hair, so I will usually shave my chest, underarms and lower abdomen as often as possible. I'll even sign up for professional hair-removing waxings when I can afford it. But my problem has always been ingrown hairs. I'll notice some small bumps on my skin and assume they are bug bites or acne.
It's more likely to be ingrown hairs. I'm not someone who likes to pop blisters, but there are times when I will get out a pair of tweezers and try to pull out the hair from the bump. This isn't so bad if the hair is on my face or chest, but if it's in a more sensitive area, the itching and inflammation will drive me crazy. I'll use an antibiotic cream with a numbing agent in those situations.
