Ingrown Hairs and Bumps on Armpit Skin

Ingrown Hairs in your Underarms

Let’s face it, ingrown hairs happen and they can happen on any part of your body that grows hair. Your underarm area is a very common place to get ingrown hairs.

Why do I get ingrown hairs on my armpits?

Every time you remove hair from your armpit you increase your likelihood of newly cut hair re-entering the skin instead of growing out. This as a result will create small painful bumps in the armpit, that could feel like a lump in your underarm. Friction from working out, changing clothes, or simply just moving your arms around causes your shirt to rub against your skin and/or ingrown armpit hair, leading to irritation. Sometimes, applying deodorant, especially after shaving, waxing, sugaring, or laser treatment, can clog your pores which can also lead to ingrown hairs in your armpits.

How can I prevent getting ingrown hairs on my armpits?
