Homeopathy Medicine for Scalp Follicilitis
In the early stages, scalp folliculitis appears as small red bumps or white-headed pimples around the hair follicles—the tiny pockets from which each hair grows—but it can spread and turn into non-healing, crusty sores. Scalp folliculitis is a common skin condition in which the hair follicles become inflamed. It is typically brought on by a bacterial or fungal infection.
Severe infections can result in permanent hair loss and scarring, and although the condition is not life-threatening, it can be itchy, sore, and embarrassing.
With simple self-care techniques, a mild case of folliculitis might go away in a few days, but more severe or recurrent cases may require medical attention.

SYMPTOMS OF SCALP FOLLICILITIS
There are several symptoms and signs of foliculitis.

TYPES OF SCALP FOLLICILITIS
The two main types of folliculitis are superficial and deep, with the former affecting only a portion of the follicle while the latter, typically more severe, affects the entire follicle.
There are several types of superficial folliculitis.
- Staphylococcus aureus (staph), which normally infects hair follicles, causes problems when it enters our bodies through cuts or other wounds, resulting in the common type of bacterial folliculitis, which is characterized by itchy, white, pus-filled bumps.
- Hot tub folliculitis is caused by the bacteria pseudomonas, which is found in many places, including hot tubs and heated pools where the chlorine and pH levels are not properly controlled. Hot tub folliculitis manifests as a rash of red, rounded, itchy bumps one to two days after exposure to the bacteria that causes it.
- Razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae)-Men with curly hair who shave too closely are more likely to develop this condition, which causes skin irritation from ingrown hairs and is most noticeable on the face and neck.
- This type of folliculitis, known as pityrosporum folliculitis, is brought on by a yeast infectionA and is characterized by persistent, red, itchy pustules on the back and chest, as well as occasionally on the neck, shoulders, upper arms, and face.
CAUSES OF SCALP FOLLICILITIS
Folliculitis may be brought on by viruses, fungi, or even an inflammation brought on by ingrown hairs, but it is most frequently brought on by a Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacterial infection of the hair follicles.
Except for our lips, palms, soles, and mucous membranes, follicles can be found all over our body, but they are most prevalent on the scalp.
