Since it is there since very long I am concerned

Ok, they look more like trapped hair follicles, which makes sense as its near your pubic area, most likely caused by shaving

You should trying warm compresses, if that does not help, you can have minor surgery

Also, buy magnesium sulphate paste which is good for this problem
