: After going to 2 or 3 dermatologists and recently doing some research on my own, I am fairly certain that I have a skin infection known as folliculitis (inflamation of the hair follicles). The derms just tell me not to worry about it, like it's no big deal. But I continue to feel itchiness, sometimes pain, and now I'm getting these little tiny scars (especially on my forearms), which I guess are left by the inflamed follicles. I think I might even have it on my face and scalp, too. Can folliculitis cause your hair to fall out?...or leave scars on your face?...If so, what can I do to treat folliculitis of the skin/face/scalp??? Someone please respond, and tell me anything that you think might help. I am so sick of stressin' about this.

: Dan, I've the same problem for many years. It seems to be related to the times I'm experiencing higher than normal stress levels, however this is not always the case. You're right, in that doctors don't seem to concerned about this condition. This leads to more stress and consequently more outbreaks. Check out this website, it seems to have the answers we're looking for: www.nsc.gov.sg/commskin/Follicu/follicu.html. Tell me what you think. Aloha!
