Hi it might be recurrent folliculitis.... infection and inflammation of one or more hair follicles Starts following skin trauma like wearing tight clothes ,blockage of the follicle,shaving... Followed by infection.. there could be non infective cause like reverse hair growth into skin or impaired immune system... Anaemia has to be ruled out for recurrence.. topical antibiotics would help ..
