Folliculitis

Folliculitis or more widely known as "razor bumps" is a common issue shaving men face every day. These bumps are not only unsightly; they may hurt and itch as well. As uncomfortable as shaving folliculitis can be, there are treatment options. 

What causes folliculitis?

Inflammation, called pseudogolliculitis, causes face folliculitis. When facial hairs become ingrown, they get inflamed. Inflammation triggers the immune system, and the body initiates a full-blown attack as a “foreign invader” in the body.

Once the immune system begins attack mode, you start to see bumps similar to acne but can be more extensive and deep than traditional acne bumps. These are called papules and pustules.

You are more likely to experience folliculitis if you have curly hair. Curly hair has a higher risk of turning back into the hair follicle, causing more irritation.

If left untreated, other conditions like inflammatory hyper pigmentation, infection, and scarring can develop. At our world’s famous dermatologist clinics, our team provides the most advanced skin treatment solutions for our patients. We have creams, peels, serums, and moisturizing creams to increase cell rejuvenation. In more severe cases, prescription medicine may be required to treat folliculitis successfully.

You can also make some changes to your shaving habits to avoid or minimize bumps. Shaving less can give your skin time to heal and reduce inflammation. We understand that some cannot shave less due to work requirements or personal choice. In these cases, using an electric razor is the next best option. Electric razors don’t cut as close to the skin surface as a regular razor. Moisturizing your skin is essential, and not pulling to stretching your skin to shave are crucial steps to take too.

If you are suffering from shaving folliculitis and want a solution that will provide relief once and for all, schedule your appointment at one of our world’s famous dermatologists’ clinic located in Johns Creek, Stockbridge and Lawrenceville Georgia locations. No medical referrals required.
