Hot compress on the area? 

And bikini zone cream when you shave.

CanadianBride456:  I find that using a loofa before and after the shave works to prevent ingrowns.  For the 2 hairs that are bothering you now, a hot (not hot enough to burn though) tea bag on the area if it feels or looks infected. Otherwise, pluck them out and swab the area with peroxide to prevent infection.

I had them, and they were brutal, so uncomfortable and irratating. Tried everything om wikihow and other sites. But what helped the most, was when I realised a few of my underwears were too tight, got rid of them, lost a bit of weight and I havent had them since. Prevention is better than cure

Beware of thicky creams as these can clog the pores, you need a water based lotion with tea tree or aloe vera.

When exfoliating don’t use a loofah or not as these can scratch the skin and cause infection and irritation. 

If you have a really angry ingrown hair I would get an ingrow go lotion as this is like a liquid exfoliant usually containing glycolic acid and alcohol, that will get rid of the redness, swelling and dead skin cells that are blocking the hair. 

Try not to squeeze them as like spots that will make them more angry and the infection will spread
