In brief: Razor bump scars

A steroid cream might be applied to decrease inflammation.
Exfoliation may be recommended to remove dead skin cells with retinoids. Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – then 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.

In brief: Time

Prevention is the best treatment here.
Use sharp, clean razors and shave more frequently to prevent this problem. Added tip: shaving directly after showering with hot water will open the pores on you face/neck and make for a smoother shave.
