  1. Okay as of 2/24/12 I have been getting some spots on my scalp and the itchiness has returned. Scalp folliculitis is an odd ailment. It comes and goes but never goes away completely. It is down right disgusting and an irritating ordeal. I prey we find a common solution once and for all.
  2. I wanted to post an update as of 1/11/12. I've stopped using shampoo altogether and just used the water from boiling guava leaves (they have medicinal properties look it up on the web). Let it cool put it into a bottle and then use it to rinse the area on my scalp for a few weeks every day until the sores go down and then every other day.

  3. Update been using purpose gentle skin cleanser only at night in the shower, and just water in the morning, no scrubbing and my skin has seemed to found its balance. I am no longer overly oily, it is very manageable. Hope this helps someone out there because I know the pain.
  4. can you give us an update? is the tea tree oil still working? As for me, I tired pure tea tree oil, poured some into my palm with shampoo and washed my hair. I let it sit for a couple minutes in the shower then rinsed it off. My head felt cool and itchiness subsided. After few days the spots began to clear up. I am gonna conduct more trial and error testing with the tea tree oil before I make a more confident recommendation. As of right now it has helped with my current scalp folliculit
  5. Hey everybody I've been dealing with folliculitis for some time now. All on the scalp mostly on the back of my head. They are painful sores that are really itchy and sometimes drain with a clearish substance mixed with blood. Gross I know. Anyhow been to the doctors they keep trying to give me antibiotics. I went on a round of doxycycline for 10 days, 100mg twice a day, which healed them while on it but returned shortly after I was off the meds. I 've tried all kinds of different shampoos

  11. Oily skin is a tough one. Accutane can help some report a great reduction on of oil on accutane. The oil may return post treatment while others say it normalizes their oily skin.
