Razor Bump Treatment

seudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps), is a common condition of a closely shaved area that occurs in people with thick curly hair. The problem results when highly curved hairs grow back into the skin causing inflammation and a foreign body reaction. Over time, this can cause keloidal scarring which looks like hard bumps. Shaving sharpens the ends of the hairs like a spear. The hairs then curve back into the skin causing pseudofolliculitis barbae.
