What to do if you get an ingrown hair on your penis

This may sound like a very specific challenge, but it's surprisingly common. Anytime there is hair removal or hair growth you can expect ingrown hairs and razor bumps to occur. In this article we will go over a few tips and tricks you can implement when you get an ingrown hair on your penis shaft.

Common causes of ingrown hairs 

Hair removal 

Shaving is by far the most common cause of ingrown hairs we see on the penis shaft. The hair tends to grow upwards and can lead to frustrating bumps. As the hair is removed and grows back it can struggle to pierce through the skin leading to an ingrown hair on your penis. 

Lack of exfoliation

If you lack a regular routine of moisturizing and exfoliation you are more prone to ingrown hairs on your penis. This doesn't need to be an intense routine, but utilizing a light body wash or light exfoliating scrub can be more than enough. 

Bad luck 

As expected you can easily have bad luck and experience ingrown hairs. It's especially unlucky to have an ingrown hair on your penis shaft, as that's a very personal area.

Best ways to mitigate ingrown hairs on your penis
