  • It will eventually turn into a zit. When it does, pop it and/or pluck it with tweezers. Until then, leave it alone, or use a hot clean washcloth to help bring it to the surface.

  • I squeeze them and then pull the hair out when I can see it

  • I sterilize a straight pin and dig the hair out. I've let them go way too long and end up with a black blood blister, so I dig them out (or DH does it) as soon as I notice them. The get plucked too then. Heals up within a day once the hair's gone!

  • ok. I am sure most of us have been shaving since we sould sneak a razor. But let me assure you they are normal, but can cause a type of staph infection which caused me to have to have surgery and a 4 day hospital visit. first try to pluck the hair make sure to clean tweezers. If it starts to get swollen and red and feels like there is fever call your dr.

  • I usually try to pull the hair out. But it's hard right now b/c i'm 7 months pregnant and I can't see it to do it. I can feel the darn thing though.

  • If it's really "deep" and you don't see a hair, it could be a boil, and you do not want to squeeze it or pop it 'cause then the infection will be in your system. Try a warm compress.
