There are four major symptoms of folliculitis. Like in all infections, one experiences a type of rash and pain, fever and at times swelling in the area. One important point here is that most patients would assume the inflammation has healed, however, in reality it has usually slowed down.
Hair is a part of the skin, and exists in the very low layers of the skin called the skin organelle, therefore, even if the pain and the rash go away in a folliculitis, some very small rash might stay. This small rash has to be treated.
Particularly in the folliculitis that frequently recur, a microorganism is observed in the armpits and nostrils, and in the groin in our patients in Turkey. If the treatment takes place fort his microorganism, the infection recurs less frequently.
