Hi,
Thanks for providing more information.

As per your description,it looks more like :-
-allergic contact dermatitis to your shaving cream or after shave or it is folliculitis(infection of one or more hair follicules in the beard area) due to shaving.

If possible to change the brand of your shaving cream and after shave.
You need to apply fucidin cream mixed with desonide cream over the face twice a day for 7 days and surely your lesions will heal.
You need to take tablet loratidine 5 mg once in the morning.

It could also occur due to the opposite direction of shaving.

Its best to shave in the direction of hair growth and not in the opposite direction.

 

If your symptoms'll persist then it's good to consult a dermatologist for a clinical examination and further prescribed medications.

 

 

Hope this helps.
