Our expert says:
Folliculitis is a bacterial infection of the hair follicles. I think you need a course of oral antibiotics, like Minocyclin 50mg, once daily for at least 3 months. What you are doing currently is correct but you can not use any cream containing a cortico-steroid, as this will severely increase infection of the skin.
