Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. This type of itching and tenderness is usually seen in folliculitis. You need treatment with an oral antibiotic like amoxycillin. Also take an anti histamine tablet like cetrizine. Apply ketoconazole shampoo. If there are any lesions please upload a photograph. I would be able to help you better. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
