Linda, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you. It might be folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles), a fungal infection, an allergy or a form of eczema. I doubt that you picked it up from a toilet, but I suppose it is possible. The best would be to see your doctor or dermatologist and have it sorted out. Good luck.
