As Joanna stated the redness and the stinging could be caused by an allergic reaction to some ingredient in the Proraso.
Take a bit of the Proraso and rub it on your elbow and leave it on for about an hour. See if a reaction occurs. If it does then bingo it's the Proraso.
Another problem could be applying to much pressure on the face with the razor. Remember the Futur is a heavy razor let the weight of the razor do the work. Use ZERO pressure and you should be fine.
