See below : Hi there:), Body shop products will do no harm to you, however I strongly recommend that you visit a dermatologist who can treat the foliculitis with medical treatment, personal at the shop are not doctors, and they have no medical background or products to treat medical conditions. It’s best to check with your dermatologist.
