Acne after shaving?

Recommended Posts


So I had severe acne my whole life and went through all the things like most people (20 year old male btw). Earlier this year i took accutane and basically 99% of my acne went away and i was still good for a good 2 months after. During those 2 months, idk why i decided to grow my beard out ( opposed to shaving it like i normally do ). So i decided to shave like 3 days ago and within 2 days HOLY HELL MY NECK AND JAWLINE IS LIKE A NUCLEAR WARFIELD.  Im a few getting whiteheads around my mouth and all over  my neck along with a ton of razobumps. There as some whiteheads and some "Pimples" that im  not sure if they are razor bumps. 

I also used to have this beffore accutane so im not sure what it is

Can anyone explain this to me. I cant go back to living the depressed life of acne again, i was so happy in the short time i had none.

I use both an electric razor as well as a gillette shaver and every once in a while I get a small breakout of pimples in my neck area. Is there any way to prevent this or is it just an unfortunate side effect of shaving?
