Pityrosporum folliculitis is a condition where the yeast, pityrosporum (also called Malassezia furfur), infiltrates the hair follicles and multiplies, creating an itchy, acne-like eruption.
The condition affects young to middle-aged adults of either sex.
It is associated with a tendency to seborrhoeic eczema or severe dandruff.
The rash consists of tiny itchy dome-shaped pink papules with an intermingling of small pustules.
The spots are located mainly on the upper back, shoulders and chest.
Occasionally, spots are found on the forearms, back of the hands, lower legs and face.
