Brief Answer: Folliculitis / Shave bumps Detailed Answer: Hi, If you shave the chest there is very high chances of hair follicle infection as this part is extremely exposed to external climate and this is different from facial skin. The second thing is if you shave in different directions the hair may curl and cause too many bumps because of constant irritation caused. Above two conditions may not be itchy and leaves red rash after acute stage. The first one subsides slowly in a week's time, whereas the second condition may not because of regular irritation. So stop shaving for few days and observe.
