Infection: While it probably started out as a folliculitis: a local inflammation/infection of the hair follicle, it has definitely become something more. Sounds like a possible abscess. Definitely need to get it looked at as you may need antibiotics.Until you get seen, use warm compresses over the sites several times a day. Consider taking a break from shaving, but if you do then use a single blade razor.
