this could be localized folliculitis. this commonly occurs due to bed bugs.have your room/house/apartment checked and bed bugs removal if found.

Just me had these . Bed often wash . private parts been sore rash recent dry and itches often . I had skin sensitive also .
Expert:  Internist replied 2 years ago.
washing does not remove bed bugs. heating doe.if this is very generalized, consult dermatologist.or just try heating the beddings and get your house checked for bed bugs and their removal. keeping skin clean.
