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
