Red spots on pubic area after shaving. Ingrown hair?

Hi, I ve had some red spots in my pubic area after shaving that came up about 2-3 days after shaving. They are only about 1mm across. I can pop them and this small tiny hard white thing comes out, and then they bleed a decent amount for the size. They seem to just come and go and have now been present for about a month. Pretty sure its not an STD , and think they are ingrown hairs, but I haven t been shaving since the initial incident. What do you think?
