Why do I keep getting ingrown hairs in my pubic area?

I got ingrownS throughout my life but ever since I got a Brazilian six months ago I’m constantly getting ingrown hairs some are even big boils... it’s horrible. I currently use a ph cleanser and make sure to massage the hairs every time I shower but they just won’t stop and it’s actually really making a huge impact on my wellbeing. Any advice would appreciated.
Thank you

You might have a bacterial infection, like staph. Have you seen a doctor?

Your doctor may be able to identify it by looking, or may need to take a swab or culture of the skin, but get it checked out. A prescription cream or maybe a round of antibiotics will help. Get it checked, though, and don't try to self treat it.

I hope you feel better! It sounds awful.
