Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Yes this does look like typical folliculitis - the timeline also fits. I would suggest using an antibiotic ointment like Bacitracin twice a day on the affected area for 7 days or so and that should take care of matter. You can buy this over the counter without a prescription. Also stay as dry and clean as possible during this time - an antibacterial soap like Dial can be used for bathing.Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
