    Cause

    Folliculitis may be caused by bacteria, yeast or another type of fungus. If the follicles are injured, they are more likely to become infected. Follicles may get irrirated because of using a hot tub, whirlpool, or swimming pool that is not properly treated with chlorine, with substances like makeup, cocoa butter, motor oil, tar, and creosote. Iron deficiency anemia  is sometimes associated with chronic cases.

    Statistics

    The actual incidence of Pseudomonas folliculitis is difficult to assess because of the transient nature of the bather population. The odds ratio for developing folliculitis following use of the inflatable was 12 (95% CI 1.05-136.80). Nine of 10 (90%) of the inflatables sampled were colonized by P. aeruginosa. Attention should be given to the problem of routine decontamination of swimming pool inflatables.
