Need treatment for swollen skin under the lips after shaving

My son got a hold of a razor and shaved his upper lip. Days later, he now has a small round red place that is swollen and hard under the skin near his lip. He says it is very sore and noticed tonight he is getting another on the other side in the same place.

Hello,

It is a razor rash, which is skin irritation from the use of razor while shaving.

Apply cold compresses locally with aloe vera. If signs of infection should apply triple antibiotic ointment locally until improvement.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Albana Sejdini,
