This : This is concerning. Please be sure that you have had a doctor take cultures on it. You may have a cyst in that area or a gland that keeps getting infected. You could try always using anti-bacterial soap to prevent it, and if it starts getting infected again immediately place triple antibiotic cream on it (such as bacitracin), but please also have your gynecologist check it as it may need cultures if you have not already done so. If it becomes painful, swollen, red, or you have fever then you would need to be seen immediately.
