Hello and thank you for posting your query on HCM
Since you are getting recurrent folliculitis, you need to take antibiotics. Visit your physician for that.
Along with that you need to maintain clean skin, wash the regularly in case you have an oily skin.

I hope my answer is of some help to you.
take care
