Why have I got red dots all over legs where hair grows?

by Paige

Hi I'm a 19 yr/o female and i have red dots all over my legs and thighs where the hair comes out, they get more inflamed when i shower, some times they will seem like pimples but not raised and if i squeeze it the hair will come out along with a waxy type thing no bigger than a grain of rice, then my skin will bleed and scar. I have very dry skin and my hair growth is thick and course. I also have a lot of excess hair growth on upper and inner thighs, i feel as it is quite manly, im so embarrassed in the summer i dont wear shorts or swim, i feel like this issue is controlling my life in a way. Every time i shave it makes it worse and makes more of these spots, but even if i don't shave, i tried once for 2 months, the problem still persists, I'll include a picture of my inner thigh where it happens the most, please help me out.


Dear Paige

Thank you for contacting Colaz Paddington.

I have viewed the picture you have sent and it looks like folliculitis.

Folliculitis is an inflammatory condition and is most commonly associated with shaving or waxing.
Folliculitis can occur anywhere on the body and the good news is that it is treatable.

We have treated many customers with Laser Hair Removal.

Most people undergoing laser hair removal experience relief from folliculitis with just one treatment. Each consecutive treatment will make the results better and better.

Laser hair removal will remove the irritating process of shaving by minimising the troublesome hair follicles.

You have contacted us at the ideal time as we suggest a minimum of 6 sessions which means you will be free to show off your legs before the summer months!

I would like to invite you in for a Free consultation and Patch test where one of our highly skilled laser technicians can assess your legs and any other areas of concerns.

You can contact us on 0207 402 2772 or alternatively email us on paddington@colaz.co.uk and we’ll be more than happy to book you in.
