Some of you might be “following” my positive experiences with laser hair removal on my face in that forum, but now I am posting here for advice about another problem.
I don’t shave my legs really at all. And yes, I have tons of dark coarse hair on them, but if I shave they itch and bump forever afterwards so I have basically told my boyfriend that I don’t care what he thinks, I just won’t do it. Of course he is a wonderful person and loves me either way and he’s rather I not be uncomfortable.
Anyway, even though I don’t shave, I get really bad ingrown hairs between my legs, the inner thighs. I’m overweight (PCOS) so of course my legs rub together all day when I walk.
I won’t get into specifics because I’m sure everyone here knows how ingrown hairs look and feel… but let’s just say they are really bad and the infections are quite deep (some of them can get up to nearly an inch in diameter), and my pant legs always get little dots of blood on them. Of course I pick and squeeze all the time. The skin here is darkened from this as well.
That being said, where do I go from here? I need to fix this problem and prevent it from coming back. Perhaps if there is a way to get the current sores to go away and return to normal hair growth I can get the area lasered, I don’t know.
