I have a really bad case of folliculitis. It started about 6 weeks ago when I went on vacation to the Bahamas. I wore a rented scuba BC vest and the following day I noticed a couple red bumps. The day after I got home, my chest and back were covered with red bumps.
I've been seeing a dermatologist for about 5 weeks and have tried just about everying and it hasn't gotten better. Actually, it's worse now than it was when it first started. The biopsy showed that it was folliculitis and the cultures didn't grow anything. I'm so frustrated about this. It looks bad and it's really hard to cover up because it comes up really high on my back and neck and even on my chest. Does anyone have any suggestions to help me?
