Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem

Well, it sound to be Folliculitis. It arise from Hair follicles and sebaceous (sweat) glands and occur due to the fact that hair follicles become infected, often with Staphylococcus aureus.

Sometimes, it can become infected.

You can apply Bacitracin ointment on affected part.

You can apply a small amount of this medication in a thin layer on the affected skin and rub in gently, this can be used 2 times a day.

You can apply a warm, moist washcloth or compress to the affected area 4-5 times a day to relieve discomfort and help the area drain.

You can use over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to affected area.
You can take Tylenol for associated pain and inflammation, it can be taken twice a day.

You can continue to take OTC Zyrtec once a day for one week.

You can use a clean washcloth and towel to dry off each time you wash.
You should not share your towels or washcloths, and launder them in plenty of hot, soapy water after every use.

Usually such symptoms will get resolve in a week by these tips.

Hope this helped
