Hi. Greetings. It could be a bacterial folliculitis or a fungal folliculitis. All folliculitis may not be associated with fever and symptomatic symptoms. However this can become recurrent and persistent in some so better to get treated with appropriate medication. Would advise you to see a dermatologist. If necessary he would make a smear to confirm the cause of folliculitis and advise accordingly. Hope this helps.
