Hi Mee,

I don't think it is herpes.  I think more likely it is a staph infection.

You shaved and it opens up the skin and you scratched.  Staph, a bacteria on all of us, got into the follicle and caused a minor infection - folliculitis.

Don't keep scratching.  You can use an over the counter antibiotic cream to help reduce the infection.  Try to keep the area clean and dry.
