You may have: staph infection in the hair follicles where you may have shaved and nicked skin. If this keeps up, you may end up getting a folliculitis (infection of a hair follicle by staph or strep bacteria) or worse,skin abscess. Use Hibiclens soap to clean the area once daily and supplement your immune system with raw garlic and vitamin C daily in your diet.
