    No, i had an ingrowing hair on the inside of my leg just further down from my nuts. It ended up with me going into hospital and having it cut out and the nurse coming in every tw days to pack it with Iodine strips to stop the skin from healing over, it was horrendous and painful. I tend to suffer more on my chin, but yes they can scar, not sure what the best to do, but i would advise to trim the pubes right down than shave. Hope all goes well James, just be careful mate.

    I got bumps after I had my ass waxed. I am not sure it is a better way. Although, my balls had no problems when I got them waxed. (that is why I had the guy do my ass thinking that there would be no problems - now I will just have my balls waxed for now on)

    I have had that very problem... I think my issue is due to having really coarse (even "ethinc") hair that is wavy if not curly at times... the shaved hair curls before it ever comes out again, and i get horrible razor-sharpened ingrown hairs that just burrow under skin and get infected and yes, scar. They take two to three months at times to resolve themselves.

    I tried waxing and epilating. WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!! To make things worse for me, my roots are very thick and deep, so when i did that, i ended up bleeding from every last pore, which made recovery even worse. The new hairs were very much itchy and ingrown as well.

    Hope it works for you!

    I have to ask the OP what your hair type and even ethnic background is?
