@MrsPramm - Have you tried using the ingrown hair products they sell at the drugstore? They basically help to soften and disinfect your skin so that the hair doesn't irritate it.
They can be quite harsh though, so I don't know if you would want to use them on your face. I know a lot of people who use them in other sensitive areas though, so it might be worth a try.
The other option might be getting permanent hair removal, but I don't know if that will stick if you've got an ongoing hormonal problem. I would ask a doctor about it before spending that kind of money.
