Brief Answer:
Folliculitis likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the attached images. This is likely to be due to folliculitis- infected hair follicles in the area. This needs oral antibiotics and pain killers for treatment. You can do a hot compress till then for relief. Apply local antiseptic cream like neosporin on it. Do keep the area clean and wear cotton undergarments only.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
