Re: Painful, swollen ingrown hair "down there"
I had one of these before and it almost killed me with the pain. I couldn't even find a comfortable position to lie down in. It was making me tear up it hurt so bad.
I soaked in a warm bath with lots of Epsom Salts in the bathwater. Epsom salts will work to draw the puss and infection out of the sore.
Also, don't squeeze it; pull it. Once the puss is out, trust me, it feels ALOT better. What I mean by "pull it" is put one thumb on each side of the sore and push your thumbs away from each other, so that you tighten up the skin. Push until the sore pops open. Your generally trying to open the sore only slightly, so that the puss comes out. Once the puss is out, it will start to heal, if you keep the wound clean enough. I had no problem with this procedure (and I got this advice from somewhere else).
Hope I could help!
