Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Ingrown hair is a condition in which there is curling of hair back towards the skin and grown towards the skin causing inflammation and infection..
It needs to be treated if it is recurring or does not improve..
You can apply antiseptic ointment over it and do cool compresses..
In case if it still does not improve then a small incision can be done and the hair has to be removed for permanent resolution..

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Hi.
If there is infection at the site of ingrown hair a short script of antibiotics to be taken orally can also be advised..

Hope this helps..
