Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.

It may be due to friction or irritation.
Just clean the area with warm water twice daily.
Observe for few days. Look for any rash or swelling.
Avoid friction and irritation.

If either of you have multiple partners, then it is better for both of you to get tested for STDs as a baseline.
