Inflammation

What is Folliculitis?

Inflammation of the hair follicle can cause hair loss.  It looks like acne initially, then the hair contained within this “acne” begins to fall out.

How did I get Folliculitis?

  1. Greasy or oily hair products that clog pores.
  2. Bacteria picked up in hot tubs.
  3. From other viral infections, like herpes.

How can I cure Folliculitis?

For mild cases, a topical anti-biotic cream could work.  In more severe cases, a prescription strength anti-biotic might be needed.

Conclusion

In most cases, this problem is easily cured.  However, it is recommended that you go to your doctor to confirm a diagnosis before trying to cure your hair loss!
