Is this folliculitis?

A couple months ago I had gotten a pretty nasty zit on an area of my body that I shaved. It was so bad it left a scar. At any rate a few weeks ago, that same spot flared up horribly. I had not shaved that area either. What makes me curious too is it happened literally right after I had gotten done chowing down a burger, fries, and and soda.

Is this folliculitis? Is it stemming from some other internal problem. I've noticed this reaction on my scalp as well, as I develop cystic acne sometimes towards the back after I've eaten a lot of carbs.
