In Topic: Pityrosporum Folliculitis

Hi people I was reading some of your cases I think I might have this disease as well. I've had folliculitis for almost 2 years, not all the time straight but with 4 or 5 relapses.

I've treated it with trimetroprim sulfa and mupirocin ointment and it seems to work but the last time didn't work totally so I went to see a derm and he sent some products that got worse my scalp (coal-tar mainly); therefore I went to see another one who gave me desonide and ovale 200mg(ketoconazole) along with kelual ds since allegedly I didn't have folliculitis but dermatitis. I started using these things and the dermatitis seemed to vanish but suddenly I had another breakout of folliculitis so I stopped applying desonide and taking ovale 200 mg to take trimetroprim again.- I read that one of the possible side effects of applying desonide is folliculitis- I haven't started yet but I hope this time it disappears once for all. I'll post a picture so that you can tell me whether is PF or no. 



PD: I did take Roaccutane but this illness came when I shaved my head. I wouldn't say isotretinoin provoked folliculitis or dermatitis.

Thanks for replying. Perphaps we both have a similar problem, as you said this is really resistant to almost all treatments and can reappear often. I'll ask the dermatologist on tuesday about that medicine and I'll write what he/she says. See you later.

No it doesn't hurt at all, later in the first day when it appeared, it turned into a small breakout -almost imperceptible- and the following days the red-mark remained but without the "breakout", now it's still there.

Thanks for replying, I went to the drugstore, and there, they said me that meanwhile it doesn't hurt it won't be a problem so, at least I know that the scar doesn't have infection and stuff, In this moment it looks better than the photo. we'll see tomorrow

Well, I think I just can wait until tomorrow, I hope it heals good, the woman that applied the peel said to me, maybe it might take more than 2 days
