Folliculitis: Depending upon the clinical circumstances most cases are due either to staphylococcus aureus (including mrsa) or to pseudomonas aeruginosa. Neither of these are likely to respond to otc medications and suggest that you see a doctor and have this evaluated and treated professionally. Good luck.
