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.


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!
