Folliculitis is a common skin condition in which hair follicles become inflamed and infected. The condition isn't life-threatening however, severe infections can cause permanent hair loss and scarring. It typically occurs in areas of irritation, such as sites of shaving, skin friction or rubbing from clothes.
