5 Homeopathic Medicines for Folliculitis

Infection or inflammation of the hair follicles is known as folliculitis. Folliculitis can occur on any part of the body that has hair on it. The most common areas include the beard, scalp, chest, head, legs, back, and arms. Homeopathic medicines for folliculitis treat the condition by following a curative approach rather than by suppressing it.

Homeopathic Medicines for Folliculitis

Folliculitis occurs due to the entry of a skin pathogen into a damaged hair follicle which leads to an infection. Damage to the hair follicles is usually caused by shaving, friction from clothing, skin condition like dermatitis, or making tight braids. The main cause of folliculitis is an infection from the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus. However, folliculitis may arise from fungal infection or inflammation from ingrown hair as well.

Signs and Symptoms of Folliculitis

In folliculitis, red colored pimples, blisters or pustular eruptions appear on the skin. These eruptions are found around the hair follicle. The blisters may rupture, ooze pus or blood, and form a crust over it. The surrounding skin may be red and inflamed. There may be itching, burning, and pain of varying intensity.
