Brief Answer: Do not pinch or squeeze. Use antibiotic agents.. Detailed Answer: Hi, A small boil after a shave is generally unharmful. Do not pinch or squeeze the lesion. You may apply topical antibiotic agent like neosporin on the affected area and keep it dry and clean. You will need to visit a doctor if the boil spreads in size or if you develop severe discomfort/redness and fever. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
