    Just be careful when your shaving.. i shaved my body once and it was fine.. i shaved it the second time and began to get little bumps all over my body... turned into a rash.. and it started to spread all over... rushed to the doc n said i had folicilitus, and gave me some antibiotics..

    here i am 1 year and a half and still have very little... and i jus stopped the anti bios a few months ago..

    you guys might have a cause of ingrown hairs... i doubt its bacteria like the folicilitus.. but you cant be too careful..

    i got it on my back after my girl waxed me. my back looked like pizza for over a week, the doc prescribed me anti biotics which took care of it straight away but you could still see the scaring for a little bit until i got tanned

    I get the worst ingrown hairs on my neck from shaving it is so annoying, and with winter coming it's going to make my skin so dry. I lather it up with so much moisturizer to help with it

    yeah i think I got that too. I get waxed but this past summer I got waxed and the next day i was broke out, went to the doc and she said it was probably staff b/c I was doing muai tai and the contact needed to be avoided. Well I still have it and havent gotten waxed since so as to let it clear up. I ran a course of antibiotics after my visit to the doc but it is still on my chest. It sucks!!!! i need to run another course i suppose.

    at the time when i was shaving i think i got a pimple on my back, still shaved my body, and i guess the bacteria of the pimple i shaved spread into all the pores.. been on doxycline for 1 year straight! and 1 year and a half later i still have some, and scars, and i dont look good enough to take my shirt off!

    i get this all the time. mainly on my chest, back of my thighs, and ass (if i ever do shave it).. but my face, lower legs, and back are always fine. Waxing definitely gives it to me on my chest and back. never waxed anything else before so dunno..
