See a doctor: What u have described cannot be diagnosed without seeing a doctor. He will take a history and then look at it and make a decision. It may be nothing more than a bacterial infection of hair follicles around the shaft but shd be looked at and treated. Local application of antibiotic ointment like neosporin may help but may also delay diagnosis. Meanwhile keep the area clean ( soap & water) and dry.
