Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to a folliculitis. I suggest using hydrogen peroxide to clean the area. I also suggest using Neosporin cream for local application. I recommend using anti inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen in case of pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi
