Scalp Acne is an extremely annoying thing to those who suffer from it. They feel embarrassed and like they are being judged by anyone who happens to notice it, even though it’s typically well hidden by hair and people may not ever notice it by just looking at someone. Luckily, there are ways to treat and help prevent the condition.
Dealing with scalp folliculitis
What is it?
Scalp folliculitis is the inflammation of a hair follicle or follicles on the scalp. Folliculitis can actually occur anywhere on the body that hair can grow and is often referred to as a Jacuzzi rash. It often appears as small red dots, sometimes with red tips, that appear where there is a hair follicle. It is usually nothing to be overly concerned about and can be treated at home, but sometimes it does need professional medical care, especially if it comes back time and time again.
What is it?
Acne keloidalis Nuchae is actually not a form of acne at all; it is related to folliculitis instead. It is more commonly found to occur in young African American men, but can affect anyone of any gender or race as well. Typically, it develops on the neck or back portion of the scallop, including behind the ears.
