Razor bumps


Razor bumps are a common skin condition that occurs with facial hair removal. It usually affects men with tight curly hair.


Symptoms include clusters of small red bumps or white-headed pimples that develop around hair follicles and red, inflamed skin.


Self-care measures such as letting the beard grow, shaving every other day, and shaving with an electric razor may help clear this condition.
