Today a clean and bald look in the pubic area of the body is back in fashion and a number of celebrities have made it even more popular, but it's nothing new.

The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Persians and Indians used this look, and perfected ways to accomplish it and they knew how to deal with ingrown pubic hair.

Ingrown pubic hair is one that grows at an abnormal angle and then turns back into the skin, causing a pustule or papule to form which is a small solid bump that may contain puss.

Also known as "razor bumps, these are unsightly, uncomfortable and an unwanted side-effect to a clean shaven bald looks.

Why do they occur?

There are many reasons, but the most common way is to shave with a razor in the opposite direction of the natural growth of the hairs being shaved.

The pubic hair can also get trapped beneath the skin from blockages to the hair follicle.

All hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, can aggravate the hair follicle - the hair then becomes trapped beneath the skin.
