What is Folliculitis?

September 03, 2013

Many people have a condition called Folliculitis and most do not realize they have it. Folliculitis occurs for various reasons. The follicles of the scalp, which are the shafts that hair grows from, can become infected. Most commonly, bacteria causes it, but a condition such as Staphylococcus aureus can as well. In minor cases, this can lead to discomfort and irritation for a short amount of time. However, it can become permanent and when that happens, the follicles become so inflamed that they begin to stop growing hair. Permanent hair loss as well as scarring can occur. In some situations, even a mild case can cause pain, discomfort, and an embarrassing amount of hair loss.

Before doing anything, though, it is important to realize you should never stop taking a medication because of your hair loss. The first step is to talk to your doctor about it to find out if there are other medications. However, you shouldn't make those decisions without your doctor's knowledge and approval.
