Rosacea & Folliculitis
added to your BASKET
Folliculitis is an inflammation of your hair follicle, and it usually occurs sporadically. If you have folliculitis, you will notice the formation of tiny pustules at the affected follicle openings. It can cause intense itching and tenderness. However, try not to scratch as this can result in your hair being shed prematurely. Treatment options are antiseptic creams, lotions, or antibiotics.
Rosacea most commonly occurs on the face and generally those with fairer skin are at greater risk. It occurs predominantly in those between the ages of 30 and 50, and affects more women than men. It is easy to diagnose as your face and cheeks will present with red blotches and you may also experience persistent redness, visible blood vessels and scaly patches. However, if rosacea affects the face, it often also affects the scalp, causing flaking, itching and redness.
