Folliculitis, a common skin condition, occurs when hair follicles become inflamed. The main culprits behind folliculitis are fungal and bacterial infections, although viruses, fungi, and ingrown hairs can also trigger it. Symptoms manifest as clusters of small red bumps or whitehead pimples around the affected follicles. These bumps may develop into pus-filled blisters that eventually crust over. In some cases, a large, swollen mass may form, accompanied by painful, itchy, or tender skin.

Medical professionals categorize folliculitis into two types: superficial and deep. Superficial folliculitis includes bacterial folliculitis, pseudomonas folliculitis, pseudofolliculitis barbae, and pityrosporum folliculitis. On the other hand, deep folliculitis encompasses sycosis barbae, gram-negative folliculitis, boils and carbuncles, and eosinophilic folliculitis. 

The Treatment

Treatment options for folliculitis range from minor surgical procedures and laser hair removal to medications like creams or pills. These medications aim to control infection, combat fungal infections, and reduce inflammation.

Acne is another word for pimples or bumps that you get mostly on your face, but can also occur on your neck, chest, back and shoulders. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S., affecting up to 50 million Americans annually.

It’s most common in girls from the ages of 14 to 17, and in boys from the ages of 16 to 19. For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their 30s, but some people in their 40s and 50s continue to have acne.

What causes acne? Most acne happens when your skin makes too much sebum, oil that helps keep skin from drying out. The oil mixes with dead skin cells and germs called bacteria, and plug up the pores in your skin. The result are anywhere from uninflamed blackheads to pus-filled pimples or large, red and tender bumps.

Hair Loss

Hair loss—also known as alopecia—can affect your scalp or your entire body. Hair loss is very common; alopecia causes 95% of cases of hair loss in men, and about 40% in women.

Men experience hair loss from genetics and hormonal imbalance, specifically of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Men can also develop inflammatory conditions that cause hair loss that may affect the scalp, eyebrows, beard area, eyelashes and body. Aside from hereditary and hormonal influences, women are prone to developing certain inflammatory scalp conditions along the crown, sides and frontal scalp that can cause hair loss and affect regrowth.
