Foliculitis: What you describe hear sounds like folicullitis. It is a chronic skin infection caused most of the time by bacterias . That means it can be treated with antibiotics. Check with your doctor to get examined and get appropiate treatment . Usually for chronic disease the treatment will be for atleast 2 weeks.

Unusual: This does not sound like a common condition and I am at a loss for a diagnisis. It could be an inflammatory condition or vascular malformation. I would discuss with your gynecologist.
