It is most likely folliculitis which you can read about here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folliculitis

The most common treatment is an anti-bacterial cream of wash such as micro shield-T.

If you suffer from folliculitis it is recommended you:

1. Wear boxer underwear
2. Wash and dry the area carefully
3. Use corn-starch based powder to remove excess moisture

Cotton boxer shorts are fine. The idea is to provide good airflow and reduce heat and stop rubbing caused by tight fitting underwear.

Corn Starch Powder can generally be found in the 'Baby Goods' section of most supermarkets and looks the same as normal Talc Powder, but will have corn starch on the front label.

Microshield-T can be obtained through chemist shops, but they may need to order it in for you.

If there area is very red and sore you may need to see your local GP/MD and ask for an appropriate anti-bacterial cream. Often the medication prescribed is similar to acne treatments like clindatech (clindamycin)
