The pimples you are describing are probably caused by ingrown hairs which allow the dirt and oils to get trapped. Everyone below gave good advice. You can use some hydrocortisone cream if you experience any itching.

hair conditioner works better than shaving cream or any of the girlie shaving creams. but honestly, spend the money to get waxed at a nice salon. don't go to any place in a mall or a so-so nail salon. it's worth the money.

If you are just starting, always go with the grain, never against it. You won't get as smooth of a shave, but you won't get so many bumps either. There are also special creams and stuff at the drug store to apply afterward to prevent these. If you react really bad, you might want to consider waxing. Do it once and you are nice and smooth for 3 weeks. You still get some bumps but not so bad and only once every 3 weeks.
