I can confirm the exact cause only after examining you but based on the description it is possible that it could either be ingrown hair, razor bump, acne, molluscum, cyst or a wart. An ingrown hair causes itch and tenderness at the local area. Acne or milia can also be in the same area as ingrown hairs. Pustules may form on the ingrown hair if it becomes infected. It could also possibly be a sebaceous cyst caused by blocked sebaceous glands, swollen hair follicles since there is more sweating here and minimal exposure to air. This is only speculation. Get it checked by a doctor for correct diagnosis and cure.
Take care and regards!
