Scalp Folliculitis And Popping Pustules

Recommended Posts

Does anyone ever pop their pustules? Is there a safe way to do this? Please share your experiences.

I've had recurrent folliculitis for about 8 years. It has always come in waves, where it gets inflamed for a little bit, and then goes back down to just several pustules on my head ( which is normal and manageable for me).

The past 4 days I've had major inflammation, mostly on the back of my head. I can't sleep on my back because its too painful to sleep on the back of my head. The pimples are fairly large, and have large white tops.

I feel like just scrubbing it down with alcohol so they pop. I don't see a point in going to a doctor because I spent thousands of dollars on lab tests, oral antibiotics,etc, and it never yielded a permanent solution.

Please share your pustule popping experiences!
