Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query.

You might have developed furuncle.

These are deep bacterial infections.

Bikni line is prone to develop this.

As there is lot of friction and also hairs are present.

Another possibility is fungal infection due to sweat.

Treatment is with antibiotics or antifungal depending upon the condition.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
