Possible ingrowing hair/big lump

Hi everyone thought I'd nip over from nails for some help. I get 2 very course hairs on my chin/neck.

I can usually get them before they start to grow in. However I now have one on my jawline that's I growing and has caused a large lump.

I know the worst thing to do is pick/squeeze but I have to admit I gave and made it worse.

What is the best treatment before I go to a GP?

Thanks in advance all help is appreciated as I'm starting to resemble the elephant man

Id go to your GP they should prescribe you a cream to apply & within a couple of days it will disappear!

Not sure if you can buy it over the counter, maybe ask in the chemist, I got given Fucidin cream.

You could try magnesium sulphate paste (it is cheap and readily available over the counter from a chemist). That will help to calm the inflamation and possibly draw out the ingrown hair too.

I tried but the pharmacy wouldn't give me it because it's near my face. May try anther pharmacy Saturday thank you
 
Or try a product with 5% benzoyl peroxide.

If they had said that to me, I'd have said 'ok it's for my ingrown hairs after my hollywood' just to see them blush lol.

They'd probably have sold it to you if you said it was for anywhere else on the body, legs, bikini etc...

Hi, if you are still having problems I would be happy to send you a free sample of my new range of ingrown hair minimiser called Aloeclear.
We have a face book page here www.facebook.co./aloeclearskin if you want to read more.
Sounds like this hair is quite deep so I would go for 4-5 applications of per day.
