hard, raised, painful, red bump in groin area?

Well, a few days ago I noticed a strange red bump growing in my pubic region. I figured it was just an ingrown hair, but I've never had one for this long. I'm a virgin so it can't be something STI-wise, but what is it?

It's red, and raised. It hurts to touch and is pretty solid. I tried popping it (thinking maybe it was just a big pimple or something? I don't know...) and white pus came out, but it still remains there. After that I put some anti-biotic stuff on it. I did shave down there a few weeks ago, but, still, it's not like ingrown hairs I've had before! I read that it could be follicle infection (I think that's what it's called) or something.

Any ideas? And if is follicitis (or however you spell it) what should I do?
Any helps is appreciated! Please and thank you! (:
