Over time, it turned from small papular (in my best description) red spots to having slight ***** areas in the
middle. I eventually turned to an over the
counter hydrocortisone ointment, which helped for a short time, but then ceased to help, and it seemed like the condition just worsened.
In mid April, I went to a general healthcare practicioner at my school, who diagnosed me with folliculitis of the beard area, and she gave me clindamycin pledgets to use for a bacterial infection.
