Folliculitis: An infection or inflammation of the hair follicles of the skin. Inflammation of the hair follicles can occur when the skin is disrupted or inflamed due to a number of conditions, including acne , or injuries, friction from clothing, excessive sweating , or exposure to toxins. The symptoms vary and include small, red bumps or blisters around hair follicles, blisters filled with pus, or itching and tenderness of the involved area. When the deeper parts of the hair follicle are involved a painful lump or mass may be felt.
As i mentioned earlier, i think my immunity is the real cause of the problem. One day, i just decided to really change my lifestyle. I smoke about 2 sticks a day, don’t drink anymore, sleep at around 10pm (wake up 7-8 hours after for work) and do cardio and lifting weights almost everyday (5-6 days alternate routines, soaking up 2 shirts with my sweat for every workout day). Another bad habits i changed was not smoking anymore after brushing my teeth. I think this contributes a lot especially when you drool in bed and all those chemicals left on your mouth sticks into your hair thru the drool.
