One of the possibilities for your symptoms is folliculitis. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics and incision and drainage may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Hey, im having the exact same symptoms that you were. Did the doctors insight work for you, and what exactly happened afterwards, if you dont mind me asking?
