How does Folliculitis spread over entire body? On medication. Precautions?

How does Folliculitis spread over your entire body? I m not sure how I got it, but I was ot feeling well for a few days, then about 5 days later I had a few spots. I went to a doctor, he prescriped an antibiotic after diagnosing it as Folliculitis. I want to understand how it could be all over my body (legs, back, arms and hands).
