AbstractPseudofolliculitis vibrissa is a rare type of psuedofolliculitis. First author developed a painful, erythematous and tender papule due to re-entry of a recently cut hair in anterior naris. The symptoms and lesion vanished on dislodging the ingrown hair from its tunnel. The distal cut end of the hair was beveled and had a sharp spearlike tip. Close cutting of nasal hair may produce such hair and pseudofolliculitis.
