However it can be folliculitis.
You should apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with Bacitracin ointment on affected area.
Also wear loose cotton briefs.
If it'll not resolve in a week then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.
Oral prescribed medications can be given.
Abstain from sex for a while.
