Doctor: Hi.Thanks for our query and an elucidate history.This looks to be a problem of folliculitis of some nature as hair are affected all over you body and you must consult a Dermatologist as such condition needs a direct inspection and may be a punch biopsy of the skin at affected area to have a proper diagnosis.Tell them I would advise you to take therapeutic dosages of Vitamin A and D. Continue multivitamins and so on . You can apply liquid povidone iodine over the affected skin and I would also add an anti-fungal tablet to be taken once a week for 12 weeks.Do not use any local lotions unless advised by the Dermatologist.I hope this answer helps you.
