Have you tried anything yet?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Did it help?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i think it helped.that was when it started covering. but it has not all gone

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 4 years ago.
This is most likely folliculitis.

A longer course of antibiotics will likely be helpful

I would ask the surgeon to extend the course for at least a couple weeks longer

I hope this helps.

If you have more questions, just reply. :)
