Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that you may have sustained a cut while shaving. This cut could have become infected, swollen and painful. You should have this examined by doctor in persons. You will likely need topical anti-inflammatory medication along with antibiotics to treat this infection. Please refrain from shaving until this infection is completely resolved.
