Folliculitis: Folliculitis is an inflammatory condition affecting the hair follicles. It appears as a small localized area of pus surrounding the opening of a hair follicle. Older lesions that have lost the pus appear as red bumps surrounding the opening of the follicule. One to hundreds of follicles can be affected anywhere that hair or pores are present..
