Folliculitis - itchy or not?

I thought I had Keratosis Pilaris on the back of my arms (both) and also some tiny bumps on my chest, however I went to my doctor and he told me it was Folliculitis, dry skin. Said to apply baby oil after showering etc....

Well these bumps don't itch at all, really doesn't bother me, and doing some research I found that most people say Folliculitis is itchy? Mine doesnt itch at all, and looking at photos it looks more like KP than anything.

Is Folliculitis common on back of arms and chest? It kinda runs down my sides a bit. And is it also non-itchy?

Re: Folliculitis - itchy or not?

i had what you described on my scalp and i would think baby oil would clog the pores really bad. i thought that was what foliculitis was in the first place.
