Brief Answer:
It has improved I think.

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through the photos.
The folliculitis has definitely improved.
I can see a clear difference , earlier it was much worse.
I think it will completely go with time.
Just apply Bacitracin or Mupirocin ointment locally.
Also, get those reports and post them when you can.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Could be hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
That could be hormonal imbalance.
Also might be small cyst, polyp, fibroid or cervical lesion.
That is why the scan and Pap smear are important.
If they are normal, then this is mild hormonal imbalance, and will get corrected, you can try taking 3 months of oral contraceptive pills to stabilize your hormones.
