Welcome to HCM.

When you are using your own instruments for shaving at your house there is no possibility of HIV infection. You didn't mention about your sexual activity with the cut on your genitals.
The pimple like spots on the place of the cut is possibly a hypertrophied scar only. It will get thinned in due course.
You need not worry about the same.
