I have a few ingrown hairs which have gotten infected and are growing painfully. My GP has no appointments anytiem soon. Do you know if i can get over the counter stuff from pharmacies to treat it?
My local pharmacies are closed tomorrow too. I'm so scared cause i had an extremely severe abscess before from an ingrown. Now i have a few growing. It had escalated literally overnight so i cant wait till next week.
