In brief: Yes

Often times after shaving pubic hair there can be irritation and also sometimes a staph infection of hair follicles called folliculitis.
Try gentle scrubbing with antibacterial soap first and if this is not working or geting worse go see your doctor.

Folliculitis can be due to inflammation or infection of the hair follicles in the skin.
It is usually treated with a warm soap wash and cool compresses.
