Dear customer,

Thank you for your quick reply.

This sounds 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.

This does not sound like an STD or anything else serious.

Please keep an eye if it is no better in a week, than you would need oral antibiotics from your doctor.

Most likely, it would get resolve with below measures-

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 try over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to affected area. You should gently wash the infected skin twice a day with antibacterial soap or apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment.

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.

I hope this helped.

As a Physician, I can say that it doesn't looks to be serious issue. You can start with measures, as discussed in previous post, and wait for 1 week.

Most likely such symptoms would get resolve in 1 week.
