In brief: Warm compresses

Warm compresses three times a day.
Prevention: related to shaving? Hot tubs? Usually goes away on its own. If it gets worse or doesn't get better in a week, see your doc about prescription Mupirocin cream & to confirm it's folliculitis.

In brief: Antibiotics

Topical bactroban (mupirocin) and oral antibiotics should help.
