In brief: Depends

If it is due to an infectious agent then appropriate treatment (i.
e. An antibiotic if it is due to a bacteria) should help within a few days of beginning treatment. Sometimes folliculitis can be caused by fungus which needs to be treated with different medications. Seeing a dermatologist will help you come to a good solution.
