I shaved my pubic region Saturday morning and had sex that after noon. I woke up Sunday with a few bumps on my pubic region and today I am miserable- itchy, slight burning. I have three bumps that look like pimples. My left groin lymphnoid is swollen, I am tired, sore throat, and slight chills. What is this!?

Thanks for the query.
According to your description there is possibility of some infection.
It can be due to shaving leading to folliculitis or pelvic infection due to sexual transmission.
As you are having generalized symptoms better to consult gynecologist once and get examined to find out the possible cause for your problem.
And according to that you can go for treatment.
Meanwhile you can take anti-inflammatory drugs for symptomatic relief.
