I started having a recurring boil on my groin, for a month now and it started when I shaved my pubic area. What should I do?

In brief: Common problem

I hope you used shaving cream as you would on your face.
Also it is possible that you nicked the skin & caused a minor infection that became a "boil". The skin in the public area is a little different that facial skin. Get to see your family physician or a dermatologist ASAP before it gets worse.
