In brief: See doctor ASAP

Initial herpes rarely occurs in hair-bearing areas, i.
e. where you would shave. OTOH, recurrent herpes could behave like this. You say nothing about risks for herpes or other new STD, like new partner, multiple partners, etc. You'll never get clear answers online, on HealthTap or anywhere else. See a doctor ASAP, the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis both by exam and testing. Good luck.
