How do I get rid of ingrown hairs that are in a private, embarrassing area

I'm a teen. recently I shaved. and I'm 99% sure that I have an ingrown hair. but it's in a private and embarrassing place. I don't want anyone too know, and my mom will never let me buy or use creams without asking me what for. I really don't want to get a skin infection, but hoping it will die down seems like my only option. please help. i'm desperate.

I've had a similar problem but it was on my eyebrow. but i know hoe you feel about it being down there haha but i would recommend plucking or just keeping it clean and it will heal on its own

My gf says pluck them, but be careful to keep your tweezers clean to not get any infection of the hair folicule.

clean the area and pluck it with sterile tweezers it will hurt, try to wear clothes that fit that area more loosely as tight clothes can cause the hairs to grow in :/ hope this helps :)

Lotion, not the cheap greasy stuff, and baby powder. Wear loose clothes, nothing that will rub so much throughout the day.
