Partner has picked up my red, itchy bumps from laser hair removal after intercourse

After my second treatment of laser hair removal (Brazilian), I developed red, itchy bumps around my pubic area. After intercourse, my boyfriend complained of the same problem. Since he does not get laser hair removal, we're both stumped. We use protection and are in a monogamous relationship. My doctor told me it sounds/looks like folliculitus (folliculitis) and prescribed antibiotics for it, but the area itches every time I return for treatments. The bumps will eventually go away, but each time my boyfriend and I have intercourse after my treatments(even weeks after treatment), he gets the itchy bumps, too. What’s going on?
