pseudofolliculitis

(Science: dermatology) erythematous follicular papules or, less commonly, pustules resulting from close shaving of very curly hair.

The growing tips of hairs consequently reenter the skin adjacent to the follicle producing ingrown hairs. Pseudofolliculitis of the beard area is very common in blacks.
