It mostly develops in the area of the bikini line and arms and legs (in women) and in the chin and neck area (in men), but it can occur in any body area. Folliculitis can be superficial or deep (mostly as a consequence of physical or chemical skin irritation). Red pimples and warts appear on the skin surface. Patients often touch these changes causing them to spread across the skin surface. If the inflammation spreads to perifollicular surrounding tissue or spreads deeper into the hypoderm, warts will be developed. This can happen in all body areas, except the soles and palms, areas void of follicles. This condition is treated with antibiotics, sometimes over a longer period of time, especially if bigger skin areas such as legs are affected. This condition often comes back after the antibiotic treatment.
