Hi,thanks for query.This could be due to hair root infection and it is common in this area as the moisture content in this area is high.You need to take a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory for this after consulting your doctor.Please avoid pressing it,wear good ventilated clothes and maintain good hygiene.
wishing you good health.
