Folliculitis is caused from bacteria or fungus. Use Dial soap or another antibacterial soap on your entire body. An antibiotic should be used, see your physician for something like doxycycline. It might take up to 2months to rid yourself from these systems. Bacteria hides in the nose, so if you can get an anti-bacterial ointment for the nose as well, you will be thoroughly covered in fighting your frustrating folliculitis.
