Have you found ways to treat this?
Also, what is considered as loose clothing? Because even loose clothing give me issues it seems...
did you ever take oral antibiotics btw?

I do take antibiotics. Have been on doxycycline for about 9 months. Was taking 100mg per day, but am trying to taper off it and have been on 50mg per since early Oct.
The thing I have found most effective for the back folliculitis is clindamycin phosphate lotion application once per day. I still have recurring flare-ups of it sometime though. Actually in Sept I had a breakout on back/chest of something that looked different than folliculitis (many small red itchy bumps). Dermatologist did a biopsy and diagnosed it as Grovers disease, which is an inflammatory issue and not bacterial or fungal. A cortico steroid cream cleared up the Grovers issue very quickly. Good luck to you and hang in there. I know what a pain it is to have these on-going skin problems.
