Thanks for the query.

You might be suffering from recurrent folliculitis.

These are bacterial infections.

Treatment is with antibiotics,

but the choice of antibiotics should be based on culture and sensitivity tests.

This test will tell exactly what is the causative agent.

Based on this exact treatment can be given.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
