Folliculitis is a common skin condition characterized by inflammation of hair
follicle. Every hair of body develops out of a small pouch termed as follicle.
Folliculitis can be observed on any part of the body that has hair. Most

chin. It is typically caused by fungal or bacterial infection. Initially, it appears
as white headed pock marks around hair follicles or small red bumps.
Folliculitis infection can spread and turn into non-curable, crusty sores. It is
not life threatening, but can be embarrassing, sore, and itchy. Severe fungal
or bacterial infection on hair follicle can cause permanent scarring and hair
loss. Acute folliculitis can clear within a few days with basic self-care
