    ingrown hair I can't see

    For the past two months I've had what seems to be an ingrown hair near my chin (i'm male btw).

    Here are some facts:
    - reddish spot (about 5 mm in diameter)
    - slightly raised where the hair is (I assume)
    - happened after plucking a very coarse hair in that exact spot
    - not painful
    - not growing in size

    Now I have grown a beard to hide the red spot because it can be annoying and I have had a bad experience with shaving while having an ingrown hair (got infected and HUGE). This time around it seems more subdued but I have no idea how to remove the hair (if there is any) because I simply can not see the hair!

    I would really like to have the reddish spot disappear so I can shave and not feel self-conscious.

    I am seeking two answers:
    - How can I remove a hair I can't see and prevent infection?
    - If I should consult a specialist what kind should I consult (dermatologist, GP, cosmetic surgeon, laser hair removal specialist)?

    Thank you all for your input.
