Man’s Pus-Covered Black Strand May Be the Longest Ingrown Hair in History

WARNING: This video is not for people who are squeamish.

A video that was first posted online a couple of years ago, has recently picked up steam and gone viral after being shared on Reddit.

YouTube user Joe Gross films himself removing a never-ending strand of an ingrown hair – perhaps the longest one in recent memory.

He initially thought it was just a troublesome pimple, which oozed every couple of months for around a year’s time according to Joe. A skin expert thought it was a cyst.

“Apparently it was just the longest ingrown hair in history” he wrote.
