Have you tried these options?
Treatment of Folliculitis
Hot, moist compresses may help drain the affected follicles.
Treatment may include:
Antibiotics applied to the skin (mupirocin) or taken by mouth (dicloxacillin)
Antifungal medications to control the infection
Prevention of Folliculitis
To prevent further damage to the hair follicles and infection:
Reduce friction from clothing
Avoid shaving the area if possible (if shaving is necessary, use a clean, new razor blade or an electric razor each time)
Keep the area clean
Avoid contaminated clothing and washcloths
