Razor bumps occurs in the process of cutting facial hairs or any other hairy parts of the body. When these parts are plucked or shaved, curly hairs tend to recoil back to the skin, instead of out of the skin. When this happen, the sensitive skin becomes inflamed, due to ingrown hair, but if this condition isn’t arrested quickly, it could become infected, and overtime develops into Keloids.
