It appears that 'pinching' the spot alongside shaving over the area has resulted in spread to other follicles / folliculitis.
Recommend avoiding touching or pinching / avoid shaving over the area when active - then further treatment using gentle skin wash / exfoliation.
If persisting consider seeing a skin specialist.

This should be treated with OTC soaps and benzyl peroxide. If there is persistent problems, see a dermatologist. Poor treatment can lead to scarring and hyperpigmentation.
