: : 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'

I actually had that condition on my legs from using a contaminated razor. it itched incessantly to the point that my legs were bleeding and scarring was imminent if I didn't do anything. Cortizone didn't work either. I was put on antibiotics to clear it up and it worked. Maybe you could try that route.
