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.

Homeopathic Medicines for Folliculitis

Homeopathy for folliculitis is very safe and highly effective. They help to boost the body’s self-healing mechanism and fight the infection naturally and gently. Homeopathy contributes in healing the eruptions, clearing the discharge, and curing the associated symptoms of itching, burning, and pain. It also helps in treating the chronic tendency of folliculitis. The best remedies for folliculitis include Sulphur, Hepar Sulph, Graphites Naturalis, Calcarea Sulphurica, and Mezereum.

2. Hepar Sulph – For Folliculitis with Painful Pustular Eruptions

Hepar Sulph is one of the best remedies for folliculitis. The main symptom that points to the use of Hepar Sulph is painful pus-filled eruptions. These eruptions are very sensitive to touch and may have a burning and stinging sensation as well. Increased sweating may be present along with the above symptoms. The patient may also be sensitive to cold air.

3. Graphites Naturalis – For Barber’s Itch

Graphites Naturalis is a good treatment for folliculitis affecting the beard area. Scratching the eruptions may lead to the oozing of sticky fluid. Eruptions are accompanied by an itching, burning and stinging sensation. The skin on the face may also be dry and rough. Hair fall from the beard may also occur.

4. Calcarea Sulphurica – For Discharge of Pus or Blood from the Eruptions

Calcarea Sulphurica is one of the best remedies for folliculitis breakouts that ooze pus or blood. Yellow crusts may cover the eruptions which are tender to touch. Calcarea Sulphurica is among the top grade medicines for the treatment of suppurative conditions. It works to remove pus discharge and treats folliculitis wonderfully.

    Riley Elijah
    I was diagnosed with herpes since I was a child. My mother has them too, and does nothing to stop the spread. it was hard to not kiss my children all the time, but they grow up knowing that “when mommy has a lip owie, she can’t kiss.” They give me kisses on my forehead instead and we have extra hugs. It was also very painful to not kiss my husband. However, I was 100% determined to not pass this on to anyone, especially those I love.I mostly want to thank those who feel the way I do.
