Folliculitis treatment

28 April 2009 - 11:12 AM

I've just been to the derm today as i got sick and tired of trying to find out a treatment for folliculitis myself.Just like most of you guys in here, i've diagnosed myself with the help of all the info and pictures i found on the internet.So the derm told me that what i have is some kind of folliculitis, but i need to take some further tests to see if it's yeast, fungus or bacteria induced.
These tests i'm going to take the next week, until then i've been given a treatment and some tips  wink.gif which i'll share with you in hope it's going to help some of you out there.

First of all i told her the little inflamed bumps go away when i'm sunbathing in the summer and she advised me not to do that again, as folliculitis has the ugly habit of coming back stronger and becomes more persistent.IF i really want to tan then i must apply a lot of sunscreen with a high SPF.

Other than that she gave me an antibacterial cleansing foam from SebaMed, a German product you can find over here or over here, Telfast pills and Fucidn cream to apply on the lesions twice a day.

Until receiving this this treatment i have had great results with Head and Shoulders shampoo which made my active folliculitis decrease to probably 10%.

I will get back to you as soon as i see any kind of results from this new treatment.

I have also attached 2 pics of my folliculitis, as it is right now, before starting the new regimen.

Hope this info helps you guys wink.gif
