Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query. Stop shaving for a few days,contact your doctor who can prescribe the correct antibiotic like Minocycline/Clindamycin to heal the folliculitis. When the skin settles down and you restart shaving,shave in the direction of the body planes thus reducing ingrown hair.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
