Welcome to health care magic
You are having boils or furuncle. It is a bacterial infection of your hair follicle brought on by shaving.
You can clean it with dettol after diluting it. A topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2% can be applied thrice a day. You can also do warm compresses for pain relief.
Hope this helped
Take care
