Thanks for writing here.

It seems you are having folliculitis.

It is a infection of hair roots caused by staph.

Avoid hair gels,sticky hair oils.

Use a good shampoo for hair cleaning.

You can apply a topical antibiotic like mupirocin over the affected area.

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
