What razor/gel are you using?
I use BHA cream on my legs to deal with Keratosis Pilaris but as a "side effect" of the cream I've noticed that my ingrown hairs have gone away.
It's important to use a salicylic acid ( a BHA) product which has the correct concentration or pH.
The one I use - http://www.paulaschoice.co.uk/weight...-acid-397.html
One I also recommend if the price is too steep - http://www.boots.com/en/Neutrogena-V...-40ml_1114065/ (I know it's for spots, it's still good )

Perhaps exfoliate a day or 2 after shaving said areas? That reduces the ingrown hairs a lot.

I say you use sugar wax. If the problem of ingrown hairs persists and gets work go to your doctor

Are you shaving with or against the grain?
