Brief Answer:
probably foliculitis

Detailed Answer:
It looks to me like foliculitis which is caused by ingrown hair and there is more severe redness than usual so antibiotic therapy with amoxicillin may be required. Also, I suggest to do std testing since rarely but possible it may be sign of some stds. Wish you good health.regards

Brief Answer:
mild steroid cream should be used

Detailed Answer:
You should get mild corticosteroid cream for intimate areas which can be found in pharmacy,also hypertonic solution compress should be placed on this area for 1hour per days,instead of it you can use baths in warm salty water for 20-30 minutes. Bacitracin ointment can be used for more severe cases.
