Folliculitis: You are correct about the folliculitis. However, I don't recommend wasting your time plucking them out individually.

It : It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics.
