It would be something that I would go see a doctor about. Do you Dip? If you do then it would be something I would run to a doctor and find out about. Do you have in grown hairs or razor bumps? If that is the case I would get a different razor. You don't have to run to get one of those unless you have a hot date. _______________________________________________________________ It could be a swolen salivary gland or even fatty tissue. Would get it checked out anyway. If its under the skin and not visible as a blemish it could just be muscle or even an absess.
