I am brand new here and I am desperatly trying to find answers from anyone.
I have been trimming by chest hair with a trimmer for about 3-5 years with only a very slight acne once in a while(used to have back acne but it has dissappeared with Benzoyle Peroxide) now about 3 months ago about 5 days after trimming my chest hair, I started breaking out in patches of medium size red acne like bumps…i dont know if its acne or ingrown hairs…keep in mind i am NOT shaving but closesly trimming with a guard on #1…about a week passed and they were basically gone…trimmed again and again the same thing happened…they really dont have puss or a whitehead but like a reddish irration…not small like razor burn though…do people think this is ingrown hairs??? WHY would I NOT have this issue for all the years I have trimmed before?? I have not changed anything regarding creams or lotions…ANY ADVICE or thoughts is much appreciated!!!
