See your doctor: You may have a folliculitis but a doctor would need to see it to diagnose it.

Folliculitis: Folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicles. Often, this is caused by staphylococcus aureus rrequiring topical or occasionally oral antibiotics. Over the counter Benzoyl Peroxide Gel can be effective in some cases.
