Very carefully!!!! Best bet is to use a hot compress on it which is hot washcloth or cotton ball and apply and let the heat sit on it, do this a few times whenever possible, it will draw the hair up and relieve the irritation. YOu can try drawing salve, any where a pharmacy is you can find this. The last resort if you cant stand the irritation is to use a needle and lance the skin around the center of where ingrown hair is, almost like removing a splinter but it is sensitive. DO NOT SQUEEZE IT BECAUSE THAT SENDS THE HAIR FURTHER IN AND IT HURTS LIKE HELL. Good Luck.
