Folliculitis showing a halo of redness around a pustule. Folliculitis occurs when bacteria, (usually Staphylococcus), proliferate under the skin around a hair follicle, resulting in tender, pus-filled inflammations. The condition can occur anywhere on the body and may spread outwards in a ring, causing permanent loss of hair. Treatment includes frequent washing, strict hygiene and antibiotic drugs.
