Maybe razor burn or: folliculitis. Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving. ...Read more

There are control centers that monitor and to some degree regulate this response, and can provide powerful reactionary responses for example in the case of a hemorrhagic stroke. ...Read more
