Usually it takes approximately 2 months to see the effects of anitbiotics on your skin, so you have to be more patient with the bactrim. Folliculitis is a pain in the butt though, try washing your face with an antibacterial soap (I use Cetaphil) and that may help. Also some folliculitis is a result staph infections and in that case it wont respond to standard acne treatment. If the folliculitis persists, I would bring that up with your doctor.
