What Is Folliculitis?
Folliculitis is the name of a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become infected. Folliculitis can be triggered by different causes, including ingrown hairs, excessive sweat or moisture, obstructed pores, and insect bites. Inflamed follicles tend to appear like tiny, itchy pimples or pustules. Mild folliculitis will often resolve on its own in time, but if you are suffering from frequent or advanced follicle infections, you may benefit from folliculitis treatment at DuBois Hair Restoration. During your consultation at our DuBois, PA practice, Dr. Jonathan Cannella will work with you to identify the triggers of your folliculitis and develop a plan to help you find relief. If left untreated, folliculitis has the potential to develop into a much more serious issue and can even result in permanent hair loss. If you've noticed bumps on your skin that you think might be infected hair follicles, reach out right away to schedule a folliculitis consultation at DuBois Hair Restoration.
What Are the Treatment Options for Folliculitis?
To diagnose your folliculitis, Dr. Cannella may perform a skin exam or take a swab of the infected follicles to test for bacteria. There are different kinds of folliculitis, including razor bumps caused by shaving or waxing (often in women or men with curly hair) and hot tub rash (caused by spending time in warm water that has bacteria growing in it). After identifying the trigger, we will build a treatment plan to relieve the inflammation, clear anything clogging the follicles, and fight the infection. Common folliculitis treatments include antibacterial creams and medications, as well as soothing cleansers to comfort the skin while addressing infection.
DuBois Hair Restoration Reviews
He’s a very good surgeon , the staff is great ,the office is very clean .I would definitely refer others to him . He’s super nice and very professional .
Dr. labrasca takes the time to explain and really cares about what the patient wants. He is doing my breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. He and his staff makes me feel like they care. I would not go to another plastic surgeon.
