Hair follicle infection

I went to the dr today as my glands behind my ears were swollen and painful. I also had 5 large swollen areas on top of my head. The dr said that I have an infection in my hair follicles! Has anyone ever heard of this? I do not dye, perm or use chemicals in my hair. I have not changed hair products recently. The dr had no idea where this might have come from, and I'm pretty creeped out by the thought of an infection going on in my scalp. I'm on antibiotics and hope that the diagnosis is correct and this will soon be gone!
