Did this start only after starting to head shave ?Do you shave ATG or only WTG ?Looks like maybe ingrown hairs ?If it was me I would stop shaving for awhile and see if it clears up . If no improvement in a week or so, I would see a dermatologist.
Welcome to the board!How often are you waiting between shaves? Sometimes, just like shaving too often can be damaging to the scalp, waiting too long between shaves can be just as bad because the hair may have too much time to curl back into the pores. Here are some suggestions:1. Try rubbing an ice cube over your head after shaving, preferably before the after shave. Cold water is ok, but ice cubes are a bit easier on pores than hard tap water, IMO2. Invest in some witch hazel. There is a possibility you may be allergic to the aftershave that you are using (or it's contents) Witch hazel stings less than aftershave.3. Invest in some pre shave oil to mix with your shaving cream. It will make the razor glide through the hair easier.4. Consider investing in a safety razor (double edged). While the handle may be a bit pricey (you may be able to find a bargain online), the razors are dirt cheap and you can use them more than once if you clean and care for them properly.5. Check your bedwear/pillowcases. Sweat/dirt from your head may get into the pores causing breakouts like the one in your picture. You may have to wash your pillowcases more often You said that you were MPB. Were you already wearing your hair short or did you have to cut off a lot of hair?Feel free to ask more questions or PM me if you need to. Best of luck!
