I hope someone here can give me their opinion on a bump on my back that I believe might be an ingrown hair. I really would like to avoid going to a doctor at this point.
Below are 3 pictures showing the bump near my shoulder blade. I’m male, 33 and although I have a hairy back, I’ve never had an ingrown hair (and don’t know what one looks like). The bump has been there for about a week and has gotten a bit worse. The area is about 3 inches round. It’s swelled, slightly red and very swore. You can see in the pictures that there is something that looks like a “hole” or open pore.
Does this seem like an ingrown hair? If so, what can I do myself at home to help it?
BTW, I shaved the area for the photos but generally do not shave that area (last time was 10 years ago).
