Nasty with a capital 'N'

FOLLICULITIS is, according to
 'inflammation of one or more hair follicles. It can occur anywhere on the skin. Causes, incidence, and risk factors start when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing, blockage of the follicle, or shaving. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph).'

And it is very nasty, very unpleasant. It stops the person from having the inclination to read or listen to music, or concentrate in general. And it makes the person feel like cutting the sections in which it is manifested away with a knife. Just ask my friend Harry.
