Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your situation.
You have got a very bad allergic reaction to your skin.
You shouldn't have shaved right away.There seem to some kind of blister formation to the local area and some local discharge.
Apply calamine lotion to the local area .Keep the area very clean.You can apply ice pack to the local area.Continue with neosporin ointment.
Take some cetrizine tabs for a few days.You might need some oral steroids if the condition worsens.Please consult a dermatologist before you take those drugs.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
