Inflammation of the hair follicles is a frequent condition of the skin in which inflammation of the hair follicle occurs. This is usually caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. In the beginning, it may look like small red protuberances or white pimples around the hair follicles – tiny pockets from which hair grows. The infection can spread and turn into unhealthy, crunchy wounds.

The disease does not threaten life, but it can be itchy, sore and embarrassing. Severe infections can start point permanent hair loss and scarring. If you have a mild case, you will most likely remove basic self-care measures within a few days. If you have more severe or recurrent folliculitis, you may need to contact your doctor to obtain a prescription medicine.


Some types of folliculitis are known as a rash in a hot tub, razor nodules, and itchy hairdresser.
