I suffered from FD (folliculitis decalvans) for at least 6 years, probably longer before it was properly diagnosed.
I know this has been stated for sometime now, but PLEASE research alternatives to Antibiotics
. I'm confident that most (if not all) cases can be directly attributed to strains of yeast cultivating deep within the cavities of the intestines and stomach. I made major diet changes, started incorporating fermented foods, and have been on a regimen of high doses of vitamin C, turmeric, probiotics, zinc, magnesium, caprylic acid, molybdenum, and now horopito.
So far, for the last 7-8 months, it's been clear. Talk to a nutritionist or a homeopathic doctor at a local health food store. I know it's a pain not to be able to eat all the foods you love in life, but the payoff is well worth it.
Please try it so you can put this behind you.
