Hi Missy,
How are you feeling?
Yes you can have in growth in pubic hair irrespective of you being shaving the part or not. This kind of presentation could be due to tight inner wear with very sensitive skin. In some cases the hair curls round and starts growing back into the skin causing irritation and inflammation.
Hot compression would help in softening the skin and helping the hair grow above skin if pubic hairs along the bikini line. Wear loose-fitting underwear and clothing until the bumps are gone to avoid friction. Do not exfoliate the skin if you already have ingrown pubic hairs as further skin irritation may result.
Use Ingrown Hair Treatment. It prevents pubic ingrown hair and eliminates existing ingrown hair within days.
Keep me informed if you have any queries.
Bye.

Is there a specific treatment you would recommend?  Mine are chronic and wide-spread, and the meds the dermatologist only help cure the lesions, not the cause of the hair growing at an alarmingly accelerated rate.
