Folliculitis: Folliculitis Picture, Treatment and cure of bacterial scalp Folliculitis

Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicle. It presents as itchy or tender papules and pustules. Staphylococcus aureus is frequently implicated. It is commoner in humid climates and when occlusive clothes are worn. A variant occurs in the beard area (called 'sycosis barbae') which is commoner in black Africans. This is probably caused by the ability of shaved hair to grow back into the skin, especially if the hair is naturally curly. Extensive, itchy folliculitis of the upper trunk and limbs should alert one to the possibility of underlying HIV infection.

Folliculitis Treatment - how to treat Folliculitis?

Treatment is with topical antiseptics, topical antibiotics (e.g. fusidic acid) or oral antibiotics (e.g. flucloxacillin 500 mg or erythromycin 500 mg both four times daily for 2-4 weeks).
