At times, these hair follicles may get infected. This is folliculitis. If folliculitis is mild, topical over-the-counter antibiotic will work (polysporin, Neosporin or bacitracin) 2-3 times/day. Topical hydrocortisone will also help. If very tender, you may need brief oral antibiotics, and let it heal before shaving again. Always shave with the direction of hair growth, & try aloe Vera after.

Some people's skin are clearly more sensitive than others. Skin prep may be key for you - right after or during a shower may help since the heat from the steam will make shaving smoother. Make sure you are using a NEW blade. Do you get these bumps anywhere else that you shave? Underarms? If so, check with a dermatologist.

Folliculitis


You are probably developing folliculitis which is an inflammation of the hair follicles. You may get relief from this problem by using a depilatory cream such as Nair or Neet. These products work well and are much less apt to cause irritation.

Shavings


There is a medication called vaniqa that may work. However shaving the area daily should also work If you still get sores your dermatologist can prescribe medication.
