Razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae) can further be divided into two types of ingrown hairs transfollicular and extrafollicular. The extrafollicular hair is a hair that has exited the follicle and reentered the skin. The transfollicular hair never exits the follicle, but because of its naturally curly nature curls back into the follicle causing fluid build-up and irritation. It is important to treat razor bumps to avoid infection turning it into pus filled pustule. Also when the pustules will heal they will leave behind mark or dark spot.
