Thanks for your query.

I shall try to address your concern based on your current given information.

By your words, I can only visualize electronically for the red stain to be a non-healing infected ulcer. Though, I would need more details about your age, sexual habits, size of "stain", medical history etc. before I can really tell you the larger picture, I have the following suggestions for you now:

1) Get yourself examined at the earliest by a physician.
2) Pus indicates infection, and assuming that you haven't been on prescription drugs, 1 week is long enough for you to rule out the same.
3) I also assume that you have noticed the "mole" just when you shaved 1 week ago, but the actual duration could be unknown. Hence, that would add many more conditions to the list.

Not to scare you at this point, but you would need to visit the doctor just to make sure all is well.

I would also suggest you to maintain proper hygiene for your body, especially the groin area now that you have a situation.

I hope I have answered your concern on a broad sense, now.

If you have additional questions regarding these recommendations, as you prepare to make decision regarding future care, you should not hesitate to contact Doctor at XXXXXXX who is in contact with me.
