Hello from JustAnswer.
The image is concerning that there is a folliculitis, which is usually due to bacterial growth in the hair follicles. There are actually several types of folliculitis, but the bacterial growth is the most common.
The usual treatment would be oral antibiotics or a prescription strength topical antibiotic. You can try home management with frequent cleansing and the application of an over the counter topical antibiotic, but if this is not effective, then you should see your doctor.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
