Not very well planned on your part - didn't you know that nearly always happens the first few times? Don't worry about it. Just give it some time to heal, try again when you don't have anything better to do. Make sure you use a good shaving gel or cream, and a sharp razor. Shaving one's nethers is such a hassle, I typically only do it three times a year. Frankly I am a bit offended by the suggestion in other comments that one should shave all the time. Being hairy is natural. **Go with what works for you.** My partner likes it when I'm shaved, but he has the decency to not even ask me to do so. It can be quite itchy when the stubble grows back out, and he knows that.
it's also best to shave with the direction of hair, not against it. and cheap ass razors are a no no.
It IS infected. Next time steralize the razor with rubbing alcohol, then after shaving apply iodine solution to the entire area and leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. You may also want to follow up with some antibiotic ointment.
