Treating Folliculitis

Folliculitis is a common condition affecting people of all ages. People develop bumps and papules in the areas where there is hair growth. The hair follicles become inflamed and infected. Mild forms of folliculitis tend to resolve after 2 weeks. The more moderate to severe conditions can be painful and unsightly. It requires treatment with antibiotics. In serious conditions the bumps turn into abscesses that need to be surgically drained.

To prevent folliculitis it’s important to stay dry and clean in the areas of hair growth. Often times this is hard to do. Laser hair removal can remove hair follicles permanently and prevent folliculitis all together. Almost all areas of the body can be treated effectively.
