They are not to big id say about like a zit size almost like razor burn after shaving. My girlfriend has not symptoms or discharge.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 years ago.

Your symptoms are suggestive of folliculitis. Usually it resolves on its own (spontaneously) in a around a week or two. Warm compresses with white vinegar can help in early resolution and decrease the itching. Please read;

The other possibility of the diagnosis is yeast skin infection. Over the counter Monistat cream would help in it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

This looks more like a yeast infection. Monistat cream should be able to resolve the issue.
