Recurring spots on pubic area that are mildly itchy. What could it be?

Hi. I m 18 and female. A couple of weeks ago i noted a quite big red spot on my pubic area, it seemed as if a thin layer of skin was off the top of it then it dried up and healed. Then i got another one about a cm wide on my inner thigh and it again got slightly crusty then healed. This kept happening and now I have lots of smaller spots all over my pubic area. Someone told me it might be from shaving a lot but a couple of the spots aren t on top of any hair. It s not painful but they are slightly itchy. I ve been for an sexual health check up before and got the all clear and since then i ve only been with one person who doesnt have these symptoms. Please can someone give me any idea of what this could be? Thank you so much.

Greetings of the day

Itchy lesion which crust can be due Scabies. Infected scabies lesion can have such presentation.

Would suggest you to see your Gynecologist. Diagnosis is based on good clinical examination.
In the meantime you can send us the clinical photograph so that we can help you

Take care
