I noticed red bumps near pubic area yesterday. Itchy but no blistering. Not as red today but slightly uncomfortable. Haven't shaved in a week. STD?

In brief: STD is unlikely

Both the location and nature of this problem suggest follicilitis (hair follicle inflammation) despite the time since last shaving.
Herpes and other STDs are unlikely. But see your doctor if you remain concerned, or if a sex partner has herpes or other known STD.
