"Razor bumps" are medically known to the dermatologist as a condition called pseudofolliculitis barbae. The condition is most common in men with tightly curled hair, but can occur in any gender or race.
In simple terms, razor bumps occur after shaving with a very close cut, because the hair curls back, preventing its re-exit through the skin. This causes the bump which later becomes inflamed and even potentially infected.
