Skin irritation from trimming pubic hair?

I am a male, not sexually active. I have a "Philips Bodygroom", a grooming tool to shave body hair. Some months ago, I developed a skin irritation in my genital area. I would describe it as a very warm (at times almost hot) feeling. Just sitting in a chair I would often feel that this area was abnormally warm, but nowhere else on my body did I feel this way. The doctor thought I had an inflammation.

Recently, I began having the irritation feeling again -- the genital area is very warm and at the end of day after work I would almost say it was like I was sweating there. I couldn't understand what was causing it but realized I had recently used the Bodygroom device again to groom the pubic area. I definitely recall using this before I had the previous flare up, and these are the only two common elements to both incidents.

Could shaving the pubic area be causing some sort of irritation? I don't notice any bumps, swelling, etc., effectively there is no visible sign of irritation or inflammation except perhaps some slight redness. I had kept the Bodygroom device in the shower -- perhaps it was exposed to some chemicals that I had used to clean the bathroom?

Also when the hairs grow back in itching will occur from the short hair. Take your facial issue and then add in the extra "sensitive" area and this would be my guess.
