Are There Folliculitis Home Remedies?
It is important to avoid manipulating an area of folliculitis because this can produce additional tissue damage, change the appearance of the eruption to make it unrecognizable to the doctor, and force microorganisms more deeply into the skin.
Are There Ways to Prevent Folliculitis?
One should wash the skin with soap and water soon after participating in any activity that might result in exposure to pathogenic microorganisms. Reducing exposure whenever possible to exogenous agents like drugs or topical substances that might be implicated would be prudent.
What Is the Prognosis for Folliculitis?
Most patients recover from folliculitis completely. There can be occasional recurrences.
