Folliculitis Treatment

Patient Comments

Treatment depends on the diagnosis. It is very important not to miss a diagnosis caused by an infectious organism because these infections can often be cured by the appropriate medication. Folliculitis produced by poor shaving technique can be treated with weak topical steroids like 1% hydrocortisone cream.
