Brief Answer:
Folliculitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is folliculitis a mild bacterial infection.
I treat such cases with a topical antibacterial cream like mupirocine.
It gives good response within a week.
It's not herpes.
There is nothing to worry.
Just relax you will be fine.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
