Hi Letty - Prevention is generally better than cure, and in this case, shaving is not the ideal option.

As long as the ingrown hairs and associated pimples are still in place, avoid shaving

I'd suggest gently exfoliating the affected area with a warm washcloth (or loofa/Sponge).
(If the problem persists, use a pair of pointed tweezers, with good grips, to lift the hair out of the hair follicle. Use hydrogen peroxide to sanitize the tweezers before lifting the hair out of the follicle. Then dab the area with the hydrogen peroxide to prevent infection.)
Otherwise you can treat the affected area with Aloe Vera or Bactroban ointment for it's antiseptic/antibiotic properties.
