What is the cure for folliculitis?

i have a bunch of red pimple like bumps all over my scrotum. Some are larger than others, almost cyst like. I saw a dr and she said it was folliculitis. i was given a prescription about 2 months ago and i finished all of the pills about a month ago and havent seen any improvement really.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic.
From your history and description, I would consider the diagnosis of multiple sebaceous cysts or steatocystoma multiplex. Both are types of cyst and present as painless, pimple-like yellowish red bumps on the scrotum.
Please consult a good dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
The treatment in either case will be excision (removal) of the cysts.
Hope this helps you.
Take care.
