Red Bikini Area

Hello-
I am wondering if I should be concerned. My bikini area on my right side is red and peeling.. It hurts, especially when my underwear rub in that area.. When I look closely, it looks like there are red bumps on the side of bikini line. It's only on the one side and I have been having these symptoms for over a week. I had Molluscum 5+ years ago, however it doesn't look like Molluscum this time. Do you think this is just chafed skin or should I be more concerned. Herpes? Molluscum again? Can Molluscum re-appear without being re-infected by someone who has it?

Please advise.

Thank you!
