Re: Chronic scalp folliculitis

Hello, just wanted to share what has worked for me in hopes it might help some of you guys as well, it's a terrible affliction and no one deserves to suffer with it... My folliculitis started about 2+ years ago, it started as small bumps and eventually spread to large cystic sores all over the back of my head, crown of my head, hairline and was moving onto the sides. They would burst and ooze puss, it was so painful I couldn't even lay my head on my pillow at night. I tried the dermatologist and various anti fungal shampoos and the standard rounds of Antibiotics which, like everyone else, helped until I stopped taking them at which point it would come back with a vengenance. Similar to all of you I turned to the internet and found that I was not alone. Through pure luck one day on a forum site (so far buried in the depths of google search that I could probably never find it again) I found a recommendation from someone who completely saved me. He was doing the same thing I am doing now just spreading the word about something that worked for him. He said to use OXIDERM + PS it is a veterinary shampoo manufactured by the Ceva Corporation (I get mine on amazon). The results came fast, within a couple days I could feel all the bumps and sores completely drying up and flaking off! It was one of the best moments of my life for sure! I get the occasional bump every once in a while but for the most part I don't even consider myself having folliculitis anyomore I never even think about it! I used it everyday for 6+ months and I still use it every other day now. I looked up all the ingredients and they are all normal ingredients in shampoos plus a whole bunch of strong Acne medications so as far as I can tell it is completely safe to use. The only thing is that after quite a while of use it will start to turn your skin a bit pink, not like hot pink or anything lol but just pink skin tone, which I have anyways cus I'm Irish so it's a easy trade off! Anyways I hope this helps someone looking for relief because I know firsthand how painful, embarrassing, and life consuming this disease can be!
