Scraped hair with old razor, having patches of less hair growth. Could that be permanent?

I regularly shave the sides of my head 1-2x weekly. I then fade it near the top with a pair of clippers and a beard trimmer. I was kind of rushing it last weekend and didn t realize that not only was the razor old, but I caused little cuts and scrapes all over my head. I tended to the little nicks and open wounds with soap/water and applied pressure to stop the bleeding (minor). My main point is, I now have little 1 inch patches all over the back of my head that have maybe 1-2 days worth of hair growth and the rest of my head has about 5 days worth of growth. Is this permanent? What do you think caused this? Thank you for your time

Dermatologist 's  Response have not mentioned if the patches you are referring to have occures as a result of shaving or if was spontaneous.In any case,it is worth waiting,till hair regrows.If not,consult a dermatologist,a biopsy to ascertain the cause may be requiired.
