hi..thanks for your query.
There are several possibilities in the above case. Most commonly, a Folliculitis.this is a Bacterial infection occuring in hair folicles.Frequently recurring and very persistent. Occur due to colonization of bacteria like Staphylococcus. It might be pre existent and now unmasked due to shaving.
You can apply topical Mupirocin cream 2% 2-3 times daily for 7 days on both areas. Avoid any touching of the lesion.
if multiple or recurring ,oral therapy might be required.If persistent,you should visit a dermatologist and get treated appropriately.
Hope this helps.take care!
