What causes pimples on groin area?

I have a 3 year old daughter that has been getting pimples on her groin area. Usually only one at a time, but they get real red and this one now white puss and maybe a scab forming. Been trying to have her not to wear underwear with pjs at nite in bed. Not sure what s going on.

Brief answer:
Pyoderma.

Detailed answer:
Hi, welcome to HCM.
By what you quote it seems that your child has probably got pyoderma. In my opinion, You need to give antibiotic like amoxyclav for 3 days and mupirocin cream local application for 5 days.
I hope this will help you.
Take care.
