Ingrown Hair

Hey all, so this might be a little too much information..but I have an ingrown Hair in my private area and it's not the first time. It's uncomfortable and if I squeeze fluid/blood comes out but not much. It's taking a while to go awhile. I usually wear thongs and between shaving and friction of wearing them I think may be irritating my skin. Am I the only one with this issue? Anyone find ways to help it, etc? It's frustrating.
