Folliculitis treatment

Folliculitis is a common skin problem where the hair follicle becomes blocked and inflamed, making it red and swollen. This condition can occur anywhere that you have hair. Folliculitis treatment is often something you can do yourself, but more severe cases will require medical treatment.

What causes scalp folliculitis?

Folliculitis is caused by damage to hair follicles, which can be due to a number of things, such as:

  • Frequent rubbing or scratching
  • Pulling or twisting your hair, including regularly wearing tight ponytails or braids
  • Wearing hats frequently
  • Regularly wearing helmets for sports
  • Using too many hair products, which build up over time
  • Regularly shaving your head

There are also a number of factors that can increase your risk of developing folliculitis, including:

  • Having a weakened immune system
  • Having acne or dermatitis
  • Taking medications for acne
  • Having coarse or curly hair
Unfortunately, more severe cases of folliculitis can permanently destroy hair follicles and cause scarring to the skin. Once your folliculitis has been treated and the skin is considered healthy again, you could have the bald area treated with scalp micropigmentation. This will either ‘fill in’ bald patches between longer hair or provide you with an overall shaved look.
