Reduce the size of redness and inflammation with aspirin

  1. Place one tablet of aspirin (or as many as you need) into the water. You will need approximately two to three parts of water per part of aspirin. There is no need for chopping aspirin, it is well soluble in water.
  2. Mix the aspirin in water. You should have a pretty thick, a little "sand" paste. You'll need just a few drops of one at a time.
  3. Apply a drop of the solution directly on the sore spot. If you do it with your finger, then wash your hands thoroughly beforehand, so as not to add to the sore spot new bacteria.
  4. Keep aspirin on the skin as long as you can. Typically, the paste dries in less than half an hour, and vysohnuv begins to flake. Use a clean damp cloth or napkin to remove the remnants of aspirin from the skin. By the way, during the removal of residues of the drug occur extra easy peeling.

We treat inflammation with the help of toothpaste

This is a very old way! You can simply take a drop of toothpaste and put it on the affected area of ​​the skin. Then - as with a mixture of dipyrone: rub the paste on the sore tubercle, hold the skin about half an hour, rinse with a clean, damp cloth.

Steamed skin

If the problem with ingrown hairs you have not is very serious, then you have enough, and the first two steps to get rid of it. If the situation is serious, continues. The next day, after peeling in a few minutes to steam the skin with a cloth soaked in hot water. Wring the cloth and put it on the area with ingrown hairs. Once the towel cools down again, moisten it in hot water, wring out and put on the skin.

Repeat until such time as the hairs steamed skin will not rise to the surface. If you applied a compress for ten minutes, but still do not see any signs of hair, then you should say that to remove yourself you will not be able to. Either the problem is not in the ingrown hair. In any case, you will need to see a specialist.


Use sterile forceps to gently get the hair out of the skin. The warm compress should raise them to the surface of the skin; But if you realize that you can not grasp the hair, then in any case, do not pick the skin, to get to him. Be patient, the process of "taking" the hair can take some time.

Sometimes you can see how to loop of hair. This means that hair made his way through the skin, but then turned down again and began to grow into the skin. As often happens, if the hair is curly. Then take a clean needle, insert the tip into the loop and pull gently to release the hair. Most often the tip of the hair comes loose.
