I have very thin hair all over my back. it isnt even that noticable, but i get paranoid over it. i shaved it like over 3 months ago. i never got any ingrown hairs until now. actually, its hard to tell if they are ingrown hairs or acne, because sometimes i break out bad. however some of them have been there for like 2 weeks so i think that they are ingrown hairs. i poke a needle in them and squeeze but nothing comes out except for blood.
i am planning on starting accutane next week. will this help with ingrown hairs? im thinking i get so many because my skin is so oily.
also, i shave my upper arms and shoulders with clippers without a guard on. it does not cut too close however i still get ingrown hairs on my shoulders. i did shave them with a blade about 6 months ago. could these ingrowns be from that long ago?
finally, does anyone know of products i can shave my back with but not too close.
thanks. any help would be greatly appreciated.
