    I think you just need better shaving methods. First time I ever shaved bald like that same exact thing happened to me. I could be wrong as Im not a DR of any kind but thats my opinion.

      hopefully thats all it is. I was using a pretty s****y razor for awhile. I have a physical this friday so im gonna bring it up to my doctor then. Just wanted to get others opinions as well.

    Hello, for anyone following this. I got it looked at from a doctor and he said its just from shaving.

      Just to be 100% sure I saw a dermatologist. I had a family medicine doctor look the first time. He let me know that it is folliculities. The glands are just inflamed and thats why there is no liquid or puss. Thanks everyone for the help!

    it looks like either razor burn or molluscum contagiosum of both of which will go away on their own with proper hygeine. make sure to throw away the razor you were using. try some cortizone cream for itching.
