Bumps: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes.
Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.

How can you get rid of the red bumps from shaving?

Stop shaving: It sounds as if you are developing a condition called pseudofolliculitis barbae which is inflammation of the hail follicle caused by shaving too close. Give then a rest for a week or two, then don't shave as close.
