Embarrassing red spots/bumps after shaving legs?

I am 17 and have been shaving my legs since I was about 12ish. I have never had this problem until now but it is really bad! After shaving I get very noticeable red bumps over my legs that look horrid. I know most people get them but are mine seem a lot worse than other peoples and they really get me down.

After shaving I get very noticeable red bumps over my legs that look horrid. I know most people get them but are mine seem a lot worse than other peoples and they really get me down. Even wearing natural tan tights don't cover them very good!

What methods can I use to prevent these red spots? I've already tried waxing and hair removal cream but these were unsuccessful but I want to carry on shaving without getting the red bumps?

Thanks in advance :)
Update: I currently use shaving cream to shave my legs!
