Shaving folliculitis: Sounds like you developed folliculitis after shaving, which is an inflammation or infection of the hair follicles. You may need an antibiotic to clear it up, but short of that try an antibiotic ointment on the area 2-3 times a day after washing with an antibacterial soap. Always use a new razor when shaving. Better yet, don't shave - you have hair there for a reason, and this can happen shaving

I have little lumps around my genital area a bit like pimples what is it really and what can I do to help get rid of them im male too?

Tough to say: Rashes and generally skin conditions such as "pimple like bumps" can not be diagnosed over the computer and a Clinical examination really needs to take place to properly diagnose you. There are too many possible things they could be, so see the Doc and get a good Exam to get the proper diagnoses so the right Treatment can start, best wishes.

Depends: There are different types of scars from acne. Pits, craters, etc. Often use of mechanical dermabrasion for crater-like scars helps reduce their visual effects. Occasionally dermal fillers help with these also. "ice-pick" like scars are more difficult to deal with, and may remain looking like enlarged pores. If very extensive and close together these are removed surgically to help.
