In brief: Staph infection.

Staph is a common skin bacteria so these infections aren't particularly rare.
There are antibiotics that should help clear this up. As far as transmission to a partner - generally not an issue unless your partner has an open area in his genital area. Also showering after sex should help reduce the chances of any spread.
