Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

its sounds like you have folliculitis

Dr. Natasha :

which is an infection of the hair follicles

Dr. Natasha :

this can be caused by a razor which is not entirely sterile

Dr. Natasha :

The treatment for this is usually oral antibiotics

Dr. Natasha :

such as keflex

Dr. Natasha :

In the meantime you can try washing your face with soap and water twice daily (antibacterial soap is optional) and apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment like neosporin

Dr. Natasha :

but you need to see your doctor for a prescription

Dr. Natasha :

I hope that this helped
