See the Dr.: Best to se the Dr. Sounds like you re getting a chronic folliculitis, which could be caused by shaving. Assuring you shave after showering, when your pores are open from the hot water, and you use a proper shaving cream and sensitive razor that is disposable, that could decrease the incidence of you getting them. best wishes.
