Potential Signs of Folliculitis 

Recognizing the symptoms of folliculitis is crucial for timely diagnosis and treatment. The condition typically presents as small red bumps or pustules around the hair follicles. These bumps may be itchy, tender to the touch, and filled with pus. In some cases, folliculitis can lead to the formation of crusts, scars, or areas of hair loss. 

The affected areas may also experience pain or a burning sensation. Folliculitis can occur on any part of the body, but it is most commonly found on the scalp, face, neck, armpits, and buttocks. It is important to consult a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis if you suspect you may have folliculitis, as the symptoms can mimic those of other skin conditions.
