    Good evening. I understand ur concern. Its also known as pseudofolliculitis barbae. Its persistent irritation caused by shaving. To prevent this, Clean d skin b4 shaving, Wet d hair & skin b4 shaving, Replace ur razor blade regularly, Shave in d direction hair grows, Gently pat d skin dry after shaving, Apply a skin moisturizer after shaving. If u use razor blade,try clipper. U may need to See a dermatologist if not improving.
