Folliculitis can be difficult to recognize at first. This is because sometimes the initial symptom is just pain or tenderness, which can happen very suddenly and without any visible signs. Painful and tender skin can happen with or without the appearance of blisters or bumps. However, when there are blisters that rupture, the skin that remains often becomes tender, red, and painful. This can last long after the ruptured area heals. Patients with painful folliculitis have often reported that it feels as if their skin is burning. However, the type of pain and severity one experiences can differ from patient to patient. Hot tub folliculitis, which is caused by a germ, has a reputation for being an excruciating form of folliculitis.
