Dermatologist 's  Response

This could be a infection of the hair follicle known as 'Folliculitis'
Another reason could be that when the hair grow back, cause of their hard nature, they tend to irritate the skin leading to the formation of the eruptions on your skin.

You can apply ' Mupibact' ointment on your beard region after shaving and continue with a daily application of the same for next 3 days.
Do this everytime you shave.
It will reduce the frequency of the eruptions.

Take care

hi welcome,
never do the shaving in opposite direction of hair.
never do repeated and force full shaving in a particular time for better cleaning
use more froth or soap while doing shaving
instead of using after shave lotion i prefer you use the after shave blockwhich is crystal
thanking you
