Take the Burn Out of Shaving; Treat Ingrown Hair Infections

Almost everyone, male and female, will experience an infection related to ingrown hairs as a result of shaving. While it’s true, this is more common in individuals with curly hair, anyone who is shaving can experience these painful infections.
The medical term for these infections of the hair follicle is folliculitis. These ingrown hair infections can be the result of shaving with an old razor or an ingrown hair left untreated. Many people ask if there is a treatment for ingrown hairs or folliculitis. There is, but it depends on how severe and how frequently you experience these symptoms.
Some individuals can find relief in just switching from a regular razor to an electric razor. This is less abrasive on the skin and can sometimes solve the problem. Others can consider switching to waxing which completely removes the hair from the follicle reducing the incidence of ingrown hairs.

If you are experiencing painful and frequent bouts of folliculitis, you may want to consider speaking with your dermatologist about Evoclin. Evoclin is prescription based foam that is used to treat acne, but can also be mixed with your shaving cream to prevent these infections. It works by killing sensitive bacteria that cause acne and other irritations that aggravate the skin’s surface.

Evoclin is made by Steifel Laboratories and you can learn more about the company at
