One of the more common conditions that literally millions and millions of people all over the globe are dealing with on a regular and routine basis would have to be one of the most embarrassing conditions we could seek out medical help and assistance for – having an ingrown (or multiple ingrown) hair on our buttocks.
Forever reason, our bodies just seem to have a natural tendency to try and put us in the most compromising positions possible when it comes to nonthreatening medical conditions – all but forcing us to seek out high-end medical attention to eliminate and alleviate the pain that ingrown hairs on our buttocks can cause.
Not only do we need to set up an appointment to have this checked out with a trusted and highly trained medical professional, but we also have to tell the receptionist or appointment setter what we’re dealing with – and that’s saying absolutely nothing about the inevitable “unveiling” that most of us would rather be knocked out for.
Luckily, when you take full advantage of the information provided below, you should be able to avoid these kinds of awkward and very embarrassing situations and scenarios almost entirely – provided that you pay close attention to the details outlined and take full advantage of all the remedies as they are described.
You may be one of the lucky few that have never had to deal with a painful ingrown hair on your buttocks up till now, but this is the kind of information that you’re going to want to have in your back pocket (pardon the pun) for that rainy day scenario when this issue raises its ugly head.
What exactly causes ingrown hairs on our buttocks in the first place?
Before we can dive headfirst into all of the specific solutions for eliminating ingrown hairs on your buttocks in the first place, it’s of the utmost importance that you understand exactly what an ingrown hair is and how it is created on your buttocks.
Ingrown hairs in particular have the nasty little tendency of digging into our bodies in our most private or embarrassing areas – after all, you never hear about anyone dealing with ingrown hairs on their forearms, on their lower legs, or even a shoulder blades!
However, there is always the potential to get an ingrown hair just about anywhere that hair grows on your body, including on the top of your head. Ingrown hairs are essentially hairs that have begun to grow out of your skin and then right back into it, creating a bit of a “hair arch” if you will. Ingrown hairs are all sometimes created by hair that has been removed from a specific area but left lying on the surface of the skin for a relatively short period of time – allowing it to get reabsorbed into the skin, at least partially.
Ingrown hairs popping up on your buttocks will be relatively commonplace, and there is some research that predicts that the overwhelming majority of people around the globe have dealt with these kinds of problems in the past. This is because the skin on the buttocks and around the buttocks is almost ridiculously sensitive, and also has a high accumulation of dead skin, hair, and other “features” that are conducive to ingrown hair.
In fact, you might begin to deal with ingrown hairs because of:
• Shaving to closely to the skin and not removing the hair that you have shaved off
• Wearing tight clothing over long periods of time that can press exposed follicles back into the skin
• Shaving “against the grain” – maybe the most common reason for ingrown hairs
Obviously this list is nowhere near complete and comprehensive, it should give you an idea of how ingrown hairs begin to establish themselves on your buttocks.
Now let’s get to treating these issues completely.
How to remove ingrown hairs on your buttocks with all natural solutions
One of the easiest ways to get rid of ingrown hairs that have been cropping up on your buttocks is getting your hands on a relatively warm compress (as hot as you can stand without ever threatening to burn or scold yourself) and pressing it down on your buttocks – or sitting on top of it – for at least 45 minutes to an hour and a half.
You want to make sure that the compress stays hot throughout the duration, and that you have a pair of tweezers on hand so that you can easily remove the ingrown hair the moment that the skin “releases it”.
Local applications of a high quality tea tree oil can also help you to eliminate any infections or bacterial issues and begin to establish themselves around your buttocks ingrown hairs – though you need to be careful about where you apply this potent and powerful serum. Again, you’ll want to use those tweezers to remove ingrown hairs as soon as you can.
