Folliculitis barbae.. Pseudofolliculitis barbae... Folliculitis barbae is a type of folliculitis affecting the beard area due to infection with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. It occurs in men who shave and in men that do not shave. Deep-seated folliculitis barbae is called sycosis barbae and leads to scarring and areas of permanent hair loss. Pseudofolliculitis barbae is a foreign-body inflammatory reaction surrounding ingrown facial hairs, which results from shaving.  It can also occur on any body site where hair is shaved or plucked, including axilla, pubic area, and legs. It is also known as shaving rash or razor bumps.. Skin must be well moisturised, for example using a lotion containing glycolic acid to the affected areas. ** Hydrocortisone cream. ** Benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin are used to suppress follicular hyperkeratosis..
