Ingrown hair

Ingrown hair is a skin condition also known as folliculitis barbae. It occurs when hair grows inside the hair follicle. When a hair doesn’t manage to emerge through the opening of the hair follicle, it grows inside the skin, leading to inflammation and the development of inflamed spots that can become infected.
