You are having folliculitis and thats occuring due to the shaving.Most of them cure by its self but some may require anti inflammatory drugs.Use ibuprofen for a couple of days and apply antiseptic cream.If it stays for more than 4-5 days,you need to rule out infected follicles and you will need antibiotics.
