    Are you talking about actual ingrown hairs?

    Or are you talking about hairs that have come away (from whatever reason) reason when grooming, that work their way into the skin? THAT is a rather common problem I've seen, but never seen genuine ingrown hairs, I'm sorry.

    I've washed and groomed plenty of dogs and have never seen an ingrown hair.

    Sorry can't help.

    I went into work at my friends dog grooming salon today, I asked her and her sister, they've both been grooming for 25-30 years, they've never heard of it either. (Oh neither have I lol)

    Well, I haven't ever encountered genuine ingrown hairs as such like we humans get, but I have encountered teeny weeny shaved pieces of hair that manage to burrow somehow into the skin of the dog and cause...well, infection and idscomfort, so trying to ascertain if that is what she's talking about.

    But as OP hasn't come back to answer me, I'll just bugger off...and hope OP isn't another PITA.

    And I think more and more people are going to leave and not get advice from the knowledgeable members here, because of the reception they get =( They're always trolls or "re-incarnates". Never actually genuine people that need some help =/

    That's a fair comment Silvershadowwolf.

    Howver, I have come across this sort of embedded hair infection in the past, hence my first question for further elaboration from the OP.

    Not once did OP come back here to this forum and answer my question, or yes, I could have helped her, because yes, this sort of grooming problem IS common to my knowledge.
