Folliculitis can be commonly known as razor bumps, hot tub rash and barber’s itch and is common skin condition in which hair follicles become inflamed. It’s usually caused by a bacterial or fungal infection.
Folliculitis can occur on your skin wherever hair grows. It’s most likely to occur on your thighs, buttocks, neck, genitals, chest, back, head, and armpits — places where friction is common. It usually appears as small red bumps or white-headed pimples around hair follicles. It may look like acne or a rash. It can be isolated to one hair follicle or affect many.
This condition can affect your self-esteem, confidence and some people find it embarrassing.
