Hello,
It can be due to dermatitis skin and if the rash consists of pimples then pseudofolliculitis barbae needs to be ruled out. Pseudofolliculitis barbae is a type of folliculitis which results from shaving. Treatment consist of letting your beard grow for 1 month and then shaving with a moisturizing shaving foam and single razor blade. Shave in the direction of the follicle, not against it  and at night, apply a lotion containing glycolic acid to the affected areas. This exfoliates the surface skin cells and reduces the likelihood of new inflamed spots.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
