I'm a hairy person and I always get irritation from ingrown hair in the corner of my mouth leaving the area raw for weeks. What can I do to speed the healing?

The skin near the mouth is very delicate and should be handled with care. Pluck the hair near the mouth very carefully with the help of a sterilized tweezer, not hurting the skin.
- Avoid using razor or waxing in that area, as it would leave you in a more irritated condition.
- Apply a moisturizer to prevent the skin from drying and further itching. It will soothe the area and help in healing.
- After the area is healed properly, try bleaching your face (naturally or chemicals which suit your skin) to make the excess hair on your face less visible.
