In brief: Which type?

Some physicians aren't familiar common pityrosporum folliculitis, one of the easiest of all semi-diseases to monitor. Bacterial-type folliculitis of the beard is a tricky problem to manage and is worth getting seen by a specialist.
Chronic scalp folliculitis may require an antibiotic but resistant bacteria such as proteus can overgrow, again requiring specialist care. Do you know the subtype?
