Swollen Scrotum

So I got an ingrown pubic hair the other day... at least that's what I think it was; I got it a few days after shaving down there and it looked like this:

except that it was redder and bigger--like an actual lump. I read that I should apply a warm compress on it for a while then try to remove the ingrown hair. So I began trying to remove the hair and at the same time squeeze it to the bring the hair closer to the surface. I must have squeezed too hard because the lump basically felt like it was unlodged; it was still present in the scrotum, but no longer on the surface. So the surface was still a little swollen, but not like before. I also could not recover the hair and so basically I just made a bloody mess trying. So I washed it, gently exfoliated it, then put on some salicyclic acid, Neosporin and a bandage. This was last night. I woke up this morning and the lump itself was completely gone on the surface, but when I found it I noticed it had actually increased in diameter. Also the skin on my scrotum itself is now red and somewhat swollen--like dough almost. The pain though that was present before, when the lump was on the surface, is now gone... is this all just part of the healing process? I've been applying salicyclic acid, Neosporin and taking lots of vitamin C, but I don't really know what else I should be doing. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.
