Unprotected sex, open sores on groin, pus filled blisters. STD test negative. Causes?

About 2 weeks ago i had unprotected sex.. Also i was shaving my scrotum and groin area. After a few days I noticed a few open sores in the area where my pubic hair grows in the groin (not on my shaft) then a small cluster of puss filled blisters came so I went and got and STD check... the results came back as all Negative. I open sores are leaving, and now just a few blisters, it burns, and I am worried... what could this be?

Hello, thanks for using health care magic.
It is a good thing that your STD tests came back all negative. From your description, it is likely that you have a carbuncle which is a collected of two or more infected hair follicles that have joined together. Shaving is a predisposing factor to carbuncles. The most frequently implicated germs are Staphylococcus and Streptococcus and the infection is contagious and able to spread to other parts of the body through contact.
Oral antibiotics targeting Staphylococcus are needed for larger carbuncles together with drainage. However, the best option is to see a doctor for a better evaluation and appropriate treatment.
Best regards and hope this helps.
