Folliculitis is an inflammation of a number of hair follicles of the skin. Most cases are due to an infection with a bacterium (germ) called Staphylococcus aureus. The affected hair follicles swell into small pus-filled pimples. Each individual pimple looks like a small, rounded, yellow-red spot. They occur in crops, usually at sites where hair follicles are damaged by friction or shaving, or where there is blockage of the follicle. Sometimes using a steroid cream on the face can trigger a bout of folliculitis. The most common site affected is the beard area of men. Other common sites are the arms, legs, armpits and buttocks. Persistent Folliculitis can also be viewed as toxins attempting to exit the body through the skin, and a yeast condition, food intolerances/allergies, or heavy metal toxicity may be contributing factors. Finding out the root cause of the problem, eliminating problem foods and desensitizing food intolerances should make a marked improvement in the condition.
