Prone to cysts in groin and inner thigh causing irritation, chaffing around panty line. Any recommendations?

Hello- I m getting pretty concerned. I am prone to cysts around groin and inner thigh. About 2 months ago I did have to a cysts lanced because of infection which healed beautifully. Now, I m experiencing something new and not sure what I can do over the counter. I have small cysts around the panty line and on groin, one a little more painful than others. Mostly what s bothering is the skin irritation, almost like chaffing of skin around panty line. I ve been putting a vagisil powder on the area to help with the itching, however, it is extremely painful. Is there an ointment I can use. It s not down in the genitals, but only the groin and surrounding. Any recommendations would be great. It is almost like a outside yeast infection which I ve never heard of. It is hot, red, irritated. It wouldn t be a sympton of Mursa would it?? Thank you.

Thanks for writing to us.
From the description provided firstly you need to rule out whether the cysts that you have mentioned is recurrent boils or the lesions of hidradenitis suppuritiva. For the same please consult a dermatologist nearby.
As far as chaffing around the pantyline is concerned, it is due to intertrigo.
Application of an antifungal steroid cream combination should help in treating the area.
It doesnot seem to be MRSA infection
Hope that helped.
