Overall goal is to 1) reduce inflammation (salicylic acid is aspirin) 2) get the hair to come out via exfoliation

Thanks I will check those treatments out.

RE: Shaving : ingrown hairs and pimples, especially neck
I get them a bit on the back of my head if I have a skin fade, and a little on the edges of my beard at my cheeks, and on the sides of my neck in one small patch where the hair changes direction. I'm white with straight hair, but if I study the hair growth at the points where I get them on my beard, a lot of the growth is in weird directions and points steeply down so it could be pointing back into the skin causing irritation. The stuff on my face is minor but I could do with sorting my head so that I can get a fade whenever I want so I'll have a look into some of these products. I've noticed that anything that causes the back of my head to crease temporarily (for example to top part of a shrug in the gym) seems to aggravate it (I guess the creasing could be causing the hair to stick into the skin where where the skin creases).
