PFB and the Military
Army Regulation 670-1
US Department of Homeland Security / United States Coast Guard Uniform Regulations
“Grooming standards to promote uniformity in the military services have included the requirement to be clean shaven. Reference (a) permits the wearing of mustaches and allows for facial hair for certain medical conditions such as uncontrollable PFB (shaving bumps), severe facial scarring, etc. Reference (b) describes the associated problems of facial hair which may constitute a safety or health hazard for some personnel.”
“PFB is not a medical problem unless an individual is required to shave daily. This condition affects mainly the neck area but can affect any area of shaved skin. It occurs predominantly in Black or African American individuals, but members of other races with strongly curved hair may also develop this condition. PFB is a foreign body type of skin reaction. As the sharp lip of closely shaved hair grows out, it curves sharply, forms a loop and penetrates the skin adjacent to the hair follicle. Shaving causes or aggravates the disorder, as only short stiff hairs reenter the skin. No conventional system or schedule of shaving can cure this disorder. However, in most cases it can be controlled.”
