Folliculitis


follicolitisFolliculitis is that disorder of the skin characterized by infection by a bacterium, of the hair follicles with the consequent appearance of pimples and white pustules. The folliculitis is manifested by the appearance of small white pimples around a hair follicle, usually on the surface, which disappear on their own within a few days. There are different types of folliculitis. We talk, for example, folliculitis hot bath (Pseudomonas) when the skin is attacked by bacteria in pools and wet places and causes the appearance of pimples and rashes and folliculitis "barber's itch" when the inflammation is due to ingrown hairs, result of shaving.
 


Folliculitis occurs with two different degrees of intensity. The superficial folliculitis, or that affects only the most exposed part of the hair follicle, is characterized by reddened skin, itching, by the appearance of pimples filled with pus and crusting. The deep folliculitis affects instead the deeper layers of the skin with the appearance of pustules and swelling that cause pain and leave scars even when the infection heals. In cases of acute folliculitis is good to consult a medical specialist to find the best care. When folliculitis is presented instead as a slight disturbance there are some fairly simple remedies you can rely on. You can treat the affected area with a warm compress made ​​with white vinegar or simply leaning over a damp towel to relieve itching and, where appropriate, facilitate the escape of pus. It can be spread on the skin lotion made ​​from oats or a hydrocortisone ointment (available without prescription). Finally, it is good wash using an anti-bacterial product, taking care to dry the skin without rubbing, but dabbing.

 

 

Acne or folliculitis?

Acne and folliculitis are two different things. The folliculitis is a bacterial infection that is manifested by the appearance of pimples, acne is a disease of the hair follicle, which can be exacerbated by an infection (or folliculitis). Acne is a skin disorder that causes the appearance of pimples, wheals and blackheads due to the malfunctioning of the sebaceous glands, which are located under the skin and are connected to the hair follicle. The gland dysfunction leads to excessive production of sebum that clogs the pores, preventing the skin to breathe and favoring the formation of bacteria causing the infection then. In this case it will be good to consult a dermatologist to see a specialist and choosing the best cure.
