take hot baths...like really hot to the point of almost burning your skin.... or get a wash cloth with hot hot water (put in microwave for 10 seconds if need to) and put on the affected area....do this a few times and it will make it go away or make it come to a head like a pimple and you can pop it....
if you go to a beauty supply store like sallys or whatever is in your area, you can get this thing called no bump rx, there are also a few other ones out there, put some on the end a q-tip and put on that area after you shave. its prevents ingrown hairs...
