The solution is to gently apply a cream with hydrocortisone on the affected area to soothe the inflammation, and moisturize at the same time.

There are hairs that are trapped under your skin. Fat and bacteria can get into your pores, causing that buried hair to become a painful problem. Do not try to squeeze the point of the buried hair, because not only you will hurt yourself, but also the wound could be infected. Instead, bathe with hot water, wait 10 minutes for the steam to come out, and then apply compresses of hot water to soften the skin and make the follicle come out on its own. If this happens to you often, exfoliate your skin once a week to avoid the accumulation of dead skin.

If the burn is not superficial, you will have to see a dermatologist as soon as possible.
Once you notice exactly where the wound is, go for a little cotton and press it on the wound for 5 minutes. Although it will burn, put on alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. Avoid shaving in that minimum area for a week or until the wound heals.
