Hi! This sounds like ingrown hair problems + bacterial superinfection. You should go see your local dermatologist for treatment of infection and recommendations on prevention. Try stopping shaving permanently or temporarily & just trimming beard, not too close to skin. You can wash the beard area with benzoyl peroxide wash (acne wash). There are chemical depilatories available over-the-counter to remove hair, but they often don't work well and can cause contact dermatitis/rash so need to be careful.
