Causes of scalp folliculitis

BACTERIAL INFECTION Probably the most common cause of scalp folliculitis is the presence of bacteria within the hair follicles. If left unchecked, they can lead to inflammation and infection.

FUNGAL INFECTION In some cases, scalp folliculitis can be caused by yeast. Usually seen in individuals with oily skin or those who use hair products that are difficult to wash off or promote oil buildup.

IRRITATION Other factors such as excessive sweating, friction from head gears such as hats, helmets, or harsh hair products can irritate the scalp.

Treating Scalp Folliculitis

First and foremost, good hygiene is important. Keeping the scalp clean and free from excess oil buildup is essential. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and avoid harsh hair care products as much as possible to worsen the condition.

If maintaining good hygiene and washing your hair regularly is not helping, consider seeing a doctor. Your doctor may prescribe topical antibiotics, medicated shampoos, or oral medications if he/she determines that it is caused by an infection.
