Razors bumps, known as Pseudofollicultis Barbae (PB) or ingrown hairs, are the bane of many men's existence. How many? According to reports, up to 80% of African American men suffer from razor bumps at some point in their adult lives. When hair curls back into the skin, causing bumps or pustules, this painful ailment is not only irritating but can reek havoc on one's self-esteem.
Usually occurring under the neck or along the jawline/cheek area, the formation occurs when the hair, that has been cut beneath skin-level, grows back inward therefore causing inflammation--when you continue to shave over the razor bumps it only worsens the situation. Because the body's natural defense is to produce collagen to repair the damaged skin, keloids or scarring as well as pus can develop as a result of excess collagen and is more noticeable in darker skin. This is not a life-or-death situation but it can be cured if cared for properly.
