Just go with it for the moment. If it continues I'd see a doctor or something. As has been said, it could be an allergy.
Moisturise afterwards. Don't use something with alcohol as it will irritate your skin. A soothing aftershave balm would be perfect.
When you shave it takes a few layers of skin off, leaving more points for grease to enter. Shave your whole face, not just your top lip. Causes uneven growth, continue, in the future you'll find your top lip more hassle to shave then the rest.
Using after shave will clean the pours of grease(and work as a barrier), and help prevent spots. If your scared, try using Wilkinson Sword aftershave balm(its the cocoa butter, I'm telling you). Or do what i did, use both. Worked wonders.
Also try using a "Sensitive Skin" type of shaving cream.

MrFancypantsUse warm water before you start shaving and a cream instead of foam, then shave in the direction in which the hair grows. Wash your face with cold water and use some lotion for sensitive skin (perhaps without alcohol).
That basically sums it up in my opinion. The first few times I haved myself it was with just warm water though (no cream or foam), and I never encountered any problems what so ever.
You could try using an electric razor if you want. I have one and it works nicely, and I don't have to use any shaving cream or foam.
No! I'm Spamacus!

Don't shave, don't find a need. Guess I am just lucky. :p Electric shavers are probably better in your case, also believe they are less of a hassle like Smitty said. Only downside is that they won't give as close of a shave.
hahaha. Like AzH said, get a good aftershave. Or a different cream.
The cold water is a good recommendation. If you clean or moisturize your skin prior to it, the cold water can work to close up your pores and further prevent breakouts and skin problems. Or so it has seemed to be my own result. My hair doesn't grow very fast, or at least not yet, but the fuzz mustache and neck hair annoy me to death so I shave probably more often than I need to.
