Folliculitus On My Neck? Advice Please (Pictures)

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with folliculitus on the side of my neck right by my ears. I have them on both sides of my neck and it itches like crazy. Can someone please tell me the treatments they have used to treat this? I have a history of skin conditions. I have eczema on my fingers and feet, cystic acne on my face,back, and shoulders. I am a 23 year old college student who is tired of all of this. Please can someone help me?

I am sorry to hear about your suffering.

When the acne is so spread throughout the body, topical treatments will be very hard to succeed in controlling the problem.

You are more likely to have success by following a holistic program that will address the internal causes of your acne.

Kindest regards,

Try a topical zinc oxide at around 40%. I used Desitin diaper cream on my neck and it worked for me. It doesn't rub in completely so I would use at bedtime and cover it with saran wrap so it doesn't get on your sheets.
