User avatar You may consider seeing a dermatologist. While your symptoms may be due to ingrown hair, it may also be due to a fungal skin infection, infection of the hair follicles, or possibly a contact dermatitis.

Without direct examination it is hard to be any more specific. All these things have different, specific treatments so evaluation is important.

Best wishes.
