You are likely to be having Folliculitis.
This is an infection of the hair follicles which occurs commonly after shaving.
Home care will usually suffice to help in this. You should wash with clean water and soap. Keep the area dry. Apply warm compressses if there is pain. Apply Ointment Neosporin (OTC) twice daily on the areas after cleaning .
If the infection continues, you have to show your doctor and get prescription ointments like Fucidin or Bactroban which are specific for staph bacteria.In future, you should use an aftershave after shaving. Also you should use an electric razor rather than a blade. These two measures should help to prevent further bumps in the future.
