Trunk folliculitis is a papular and pustular folliculitic eruption on the upper trunk of young and middle-aged age groups. Yeast (Malassezia) detection (KOH) is negative. Bacteriology is negative, and comedones, cysts and facial acne are absent. Thus it is a diagnosis of exclusion. The response to UVB therapy is good.
