How to treat folliculitis

How to cure the skin scalp
Treating folliculitis is important if you want to be able to preserve your hair.

Knowing better how to treat folliculitis, a condition in which the hair follicle is inflamed, is very important if you want to prevent and stop hair loss.
Let’s begin knowing the main types of this illness:

• Parasitic Folliculitis;

• Viral Folliculitis;

• Fungal Folliculitis and

• Bacterial Folliculitis

 Bacterial folliculitis

Is present when bacteria enter the body through a cut in the skin, or begins to multiply in the skin near the hair follicle.

These bacteria can even spread from the infected area, to other parts of the body.

This type of folliculitis may be deep, or just happen near the surface of the skin.

When it is superficial, it manifests with pustules (little elevations of the skin full of pus), usually surrounded by a reddish ring.

When it is deep, it can involve not just one follicle, but several, and the most serious cases can even create permanent scars on the skin.

This happens especially when there is a chronic infection of the hair root.

The most common bacteria which cause it are

  • The Proteus,
  • The Streptococcus, and
  • The Coliform.

There is also a type of this condition called “hot tub”, which is triggered by the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and it is normally caused by unsanitary conditions.

When the follicle infections are superficial sometimes they resolve themselves spontaneously, however the most severe types that I have mentioned in this post may need a prescription therapy.

Fungal folliculitis treatment

Is triggered by fungal infections, which are usually located on the surface of the skin, but it can also go in the deeper layers, and when it is severe can move to internal parts of the body.

The most common types of this particular condition are caused by

  • The yeast Candida folliculitis and
  • The fungus Pityrosporum fungus.

There is another type called “Dermatophytic” and it is caused by some fungal species that usually live on animals.

It manifests pustules around a reddened plaque, and it is a very deep penetration which causes inflammation and precedes alopecia.

The most prominent type of the pediatric form of this folliculitis is the Tinea capitis, also known as ringworm, which often contributes to trigger hair loss and different irritations to the scalp.

Dundruff is also present, with severe scaling, sometimes with boggy masses.

There is also another type of this folliculitis called Tinea barbae, but it is superficial and it connected to the face, near the beard.

It can get sometimes serious, presenting red papules, pustules and crusting.

The main fungi causing this type are the

  • T. Verrucosum and the
  • T. Mentagrophytes.

The Pityrosporum folliculitis is caused by yeasts of Pityrosporum which create an itchy eruption whose appearance is made of reddish follicular pustules located mainly on the chest, the upper back, and shoulders.

As the name says

Candida folliculitis

is triggered by the Candida species, a type of very common fungi which affects people.

Viral folliculitis

Presents different viral infections of the root. Some of this type are caused by the virus of herpes zoster, which causes many pale, itchy pustules over the beard area.
