Answer

Complications of gram-negative folliculitis are largely limited to expansion of infection, as well as potential permanent scarring. Of note, however, is the high potential for this condition to be missed when a diagnosis is attempted through telemedicine or direct-to-consumer telemedicine websites and smartphone apps. [10]
