Brief Answer:
Superficial folliculitis, nothing to worry about.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for your query.

I have reviewed the attached photograph and it is a superficial folliculitis.

It is nothing to worry about.

You can leave it as such or apply a topical antibiotic like Mupirocin cream on the affected area.

This will resolve it.

Hope this answers your queries.
