Wondering how it went

As some of you may have read I finally figured out how to shave down there before surgery. It looked all soft and baby smooth and when the nurse showed up to shave me she said I had done good enough and decided she didn't have to. All though this time she did have some new fangled electric looking thingy she still wasn't going to use shaving cream or anything. Anyway during the surgery they put some giant sticky cover over my whole stomach and legs so he knew exactly where to cut. When they peeled that off I think half of my skin went with it. However, from my not so stellar shaving techniques and the peeling off of the sticky stuff I now have little white ingrown hair bumps. At first I flipped out thinking I developed a rash then I realized what it was and now I'm just mad. I'm extra mad because I still have a little belly so it still isn't the most accessible area. So now what do I do to fix this? How do I get rid of the bumpies (aside from poking them which provides hours of entertainment) and make sure they go away and everything else grows back in all pretty like?

LEAVE THEM ALONE. NO PICKING.

Do NOT exfoliate as that could cause infection and hold a hot flannel against the 'area' for about 10 minutes, morning and night. That will soften the bumpies and help the hairs grow out. :D

Hmmm. I was going to say exfoliate... I guess that isn't a good idea. But, used to get ingrown hairs sometimes and the exfoliation worked for me. Maybe if you just do it gently. Oh, and don't pick them, that will definitely make it worse.
