In brief: Hair removal techniq

If any hair removal techniques are used in the area, they could increase the likelihood of ingrown hairs.
I'd probably have you try a topical antibiotic like 1% Clindamycin gel (prescription product), used immediately after hair removal and twice a day until the problem clears up. As needed after that.

Try not to fuss too much with the area.
Perhaps a consultation with a dermatologist may help.
