For recurrent uncomplicated superficial folliculitis, use of antibacterial soaps and good hand washing technique may be all that is needed. For refractory or deep lesions that have a suspected infectious etiology, empiric treatment with topical and/or oral antibiotics that cover gram-positive organisms may be of benefit. If a patient does not improve with a standard course of antibiotics, other causes of folliculitis must be investigated...consult dermatologist
