Soaks, Dermatologist: If actual scarring has set in as a result of the healing process, then that is a permanent change, which would probably require plastic surgery. On the other hand, if you are still healing, or if this is a recurring problem, then regular warm soaks 1-2 times daily for about 15 minutes & a visit to the dermatologist should help.

See dermatologist: Dermatology may have a way of decreasing or removing any superficial scarring--called dermabrasion or chemical peel to the areas involved. Speak to your dematologist.

Find the cause: Some folliculitis is caused by putyrosporum yeast and does not respond to other treatments. A single dose of ketoconazole followed by working up a sweat can put this in remission for a few weeks
