Barber's Itch, or folliculitis, may have a funny name but it isn't so funny when it affects your skin. Folliculitis occurs when the hair follicles, or small areas that surround each hair, becomes inflamed and infected and cause the growth of pimple-like pustule with a white head. The small pustules are basically ingrown hairs caused by follicular inflammation which often occur in large patches or over the same part of the body over and over again.
