What causes it and what can i do to stop itl

Ingrown hair is caused by aggressive or improper hair removal. However in your case it could be as a result of dead skin debris blocking the hair follicle opening. The result is either the hair growing inwards or sideways in your skin and when it gets infected the result is a bump with pus just like the one on your head.
