Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The bumps after shaving appear due to minor cuts that occur due to too close shaving. Best advisable thing is stop shaving and try depilation or some hair removal cream. After shaving apply some antiseptic cream in the area and lather well with soap before shaving.
