If an ingrown hair is bothering you or has become infected, your doctor can make a small cut in your skin with a sterile needle or scalpel to release it. Your doctor may also prescribe medicine such as:
Steroid medicine that you rub on your skin to bring down the swelling
Retinoids (Retin A) to remove dead skin cells and reduce the skin pigment changes that can occur from ingrown hairs
Antibiotic that you take by mouth or rub onto your skin to treat an ingrown hair infection
