Hi my name is Trung and I have been suffering from what is known as folliculitis decalvans it started about 7 years ago when I was 10. It first appear on the left side of my scalp just right above the ear. At the time it was only the size of a penny it did not leak nor was it painful but it did made me lose hair in that area. I was then given some anti-biotic from the doctor. After about a year it come back worse then ever it continues spreading through my scalp and soon on to my face. I have seen 4 different dermatologist and been on numerous medication and topical treatment. Please if anyone know a cure or treatment that seems successful or is successful let me know.

Possible Cause

-Stress ( Work,School,Family,and Health)

-Heat (Its really hot here in Vegas but during Winter the disease halts till it get hot again)

Topical Treatments
