Ingrown Hairs and Shaving Bumps
You probably don’t give a lot of thought to shaving bumps, or their official name (Pseudo Folliculitis or PFB), unless you have one or get them frequently. We see patients who have this issue at DermaTouch RN, and fortunately, we have the technology to make shaving bumps and ingrown hairs history!
What causes ingrown hairs or shaving bumps (PFB)?
Shaving bumps are caused by a foreign body inflammatory response involving pustules and papules. The pathogenesis of PFB is caused by:
1. Extrafollicular penetration that occurs when hair reenters the skin after a close shave.
2. Transfollicular penetration that occurs after a close shave when the sharp tip of a growing hair pierces the follicle wall.
