Swollen bump filled with puss in pubic area after shaving. How can it be treated?

I shaved approximately 2 weeks ago, and I have formed a pimple-like bump in my pubic area. The bump is swollen and when I popped it puss came out. What is this and can I treat it at home? I have not had Sexual Intercourse so there is no way it is an STD . When I shaved, I did so upwards in only one spot which is the same area the bump is at.
