How to Prevent Folliculitis

Thursday, 09 Jun 2011 05:12 PM

Folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicles that can be easily prevented through the precautionary measures mentioned below:

• Before shaving, wash the skin with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. Shaving with an electric razor and changing razorblades frequently reduces skin irritation that leads to folliculitis
• Keep bathtubs and hot tubs clean in order to lessen the amount of bacteria that can enter the hair follicle.
• Wear loose garments after shaving to reduce friction against the hair follicle and prevent excessive moisture that can lead to follicle blockage.

Once folliculitis has appeared, treatment is fairly simple. Mild folliculitis can be cured at home by cleansing the infected area with anti-bacterial soap. Bumps may take a few days to disappear, and more severe cases of folliculitis should be treated by a dermatologist.
