Thanks for writing to us.
From your description it seems that you are having a recurrent folliculitis or a pilonidal sinus in the area. A direct examination is necessary for proper diagnosis. Since it is infected, you need systemic antibiotics to cover up the infection. Please get yourself examined by a surgeon for proper treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
