HIV AIDS Specialist 's  Response

What you described may be due to hair folliculitis. It may be due superficial bacterial infection. As it associated with lymph node enlargement ,it is better to take a course of antibiotics for a duration of 7- 10 days. You can as well use an antiseptic soap. You will be alright.

You consult your physician and rule out any STD cause like genital herpes and take the drugs as per his/her guidance.
You will be alright soon.
Wish you speedy recovery.
