Folliculitis is the inflammation of hair follicles that can occur anywhere on the skin. The cause of most cases of folliculitis is the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, which enters the body through tiny breaks in the skin, such as those caused by friction with clothing, shaving too closely or insect bites. It also rapidly reproduces in environments like clogged pores and follicles. The symptoms of folliculitis are:
● Itchy skin● Rash/reddened areas of skin● Pustule development, typically on groin, neck or joints
The prescribed treatments for folliculitis are easily applied and tend to gravitate towards meticulous skin hygiene for the duration of the affliction. Application of topical antiseptics is most common, as they will clean out most aggravating factors and cleanse the skin. Over-the-counter topical antibiotics are also popular, though not always necessary. In more severe cases where the folliculitis does not respond to the aforementioned treatments and/or is spreading rampantly to different areas of skin, more powerful prescription-strength antibiotics, including penicillin derivatives, may be prescribed by your doctor.
