Guys... don't tweeze facial hair!

I recently had what I thought to be an ingrown hair on my jawline so I squeezed the heck out of(I know it's bad) and nothing happened, it just seemed to make the bump harder and bigger. Along with that it also gave me a nice big red mark.

So I left it alone for a while, but it still felt like something was under the skin, so I squeezed it again and got nothing but a bigger bump and a worse red mark. So again I left it alone for while.

The redness faded but there still felt like there was somethig under the skin so I squeezed it yet again and I also got a tweezers and pluck all the hairs from the area thinking I'll pull the ingrown hair out. Of course, this didn't work and now I have an even worse red mark and 2 shallow pock mark scars to boot, which I am sure are a result of pulling the hairs out. What maked it worse is that the hair doesn't seem to be growing back and I now have a bald spot on my face that is red as hell and 2 scars that look bad.

Yeah, I'm an idiot.

I don't think tweezing the hair would scar you... the skin is probably just angry at you for messing with it so much and focusing all it's energy on forming/fixing that bump... I'm sure the holes will close up in a day or so... in the mean time ice that bump or put some preparation H on it and the swelling will go down from where you messed with it.

The holes have been there for a few weeks already, so I don't think they'll close up on their own...
