I wounded my face once while removing a white hair strand growing on my face. After removing the hair strand, the skin around it starts to peel off and there is a slight watery discharge after pinching the wound. I have used topical medication on the wound. But the skin heals and the white hair grows again from there. This has been happening repeatedly.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
You have developed folliculitis and I suggest you do not pluck that hair strand anymore. Apply Clindamycin Phosphate (antibiotic) cream on the wound and keep the area dry at all times. If you wish to remove it for cosmetic purpose, then I suggest you to use a sterile scissor to cut it and completely avoid plucking it. There are options such a laser therapy to get rid of it completely.
Kindly visit a dermatologist, speak to them about your concerns.
I hope this has helped you out.
Thanks and regards.
