As you said, you are having acne,folliculitis and sever itching and burning on legs.

Acne can occure on chest,back and upper arms besides face.

Apply clindamycine and adapalene combined gel on the acne lesions at night.

Take minocycline 50 mg daily in morning.

Take zinc sulfate tab at night.

Cleanse the face with antiseptic soap or face wash.

Folliculitis may be recovered by minocycline .

Itching may be relieved by antihistaminics like levocetirizine tab.

Avoid soap at bath, use dettol liq.

Avoid stress and worries.

You might be improved.

I hope you got my answer.
