Pictures of Hair Bumps

You asked for it, you got it: pictures of hair bumps.

Let’s get this party started.

Bless this man’s heart…and chest…and neck! He has a serious case of folliculitis, which is inflammation of the hair follicles.

And below, the picture identifies this red, angry-looking patch of skin as “razor rash.” Since most of us women don’t have to deal with shaving our faces and necks, we’ve got to give the guys who suffer through painful razor bumps a lot of credit.

Razor Rash

These two pictures of hair bumps really show the difference between a scattered rash caused by shaving, and the bumps that show up when folliculitis sets in. Because our skin is covered with natural bacteria, we’re always at risk for germs to get inside hair follicles. Some people are just more at risk than others are.

Last, we have a mild case of folliculitis barbae, which is also called “beard bumps.” Again, shaving is usually to blame for these itchy, irritated little pimples. Sometimes, when we shave, we can cause tiny cuts in our skin–and this lets bacteria move from the surface of our skin, to under our skin. Other times, we cut our hair so short that it winds up becoming an ingrown hair. Often times, you can actually see the hair coiled up, unable to make its way out.

When you’re dealing with razor rash, there are lots of ways you can help keep your skin smooth and soft–and free from all those bumps. We especially recommend exfoliating…it takes a little bit of time to see the results, but it’s well worth adding this simple step to your care.

Know what’s best for your skin, and take good care of yourself–and you won’t see yourself in any pictures of hair bumps.
