Is folliculitis a sign of allergy or ill health? How can I protect myself against cystic acne and inflammation of the skin due to prolonged exposure to the sun?

Are there recommended shampoo for folliculitis or facial regimen for cystic acne?

Dear @dylanojh Folliculitis is due to inflammation of hair follicles.  It can be due to bacteria, virus or even fungus. Folliculitis is not a sign of allergy but it indicates poor skin health.

You might wish to refer to my previous article on maskne on some tips of skin self care and treatments available for acne.
