Thank you

Thank you for attaching the pictures. I have seen them.

They are very blurry, but from the looks of it this looks like Follculitis, which is a localized cellulitis which occurs as a result of infection in the hair follicle.

I will suggest that you start on an anti-inflammatory like Advil 400mg thrice a day and apply Neosporin ointment on the area twice a day for 5 to 7 days.

Abstain from sexual intercourse and masturbation as friction can aggravate the inflammation.
