Hello, Since the bumps are not painful, so it is less likely that these are due to shingles or herpes. It can be due to irritated hair follicles, folliculitis, contact dermatitis, allergies or viral rash. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as Bactroban can be applied.
Hi, I'm 16, almost 17, and i got folliculitis on my scrotum two weeks ago. I've been taking antibiotic creams, such as Bactroban, for the past two weeks, and it has been helping, but whenever an infected hair follicule heals up, it seems a blister appears, then when the blister goes away, another blister appears. If the antibiotics don't work, is there any other things i should consider? Like, laser removal or draining?
Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of irritated hair follicles or folliculitis which is caused by the friction rub caused in the area. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as Neosporin and Bactroban are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.
Secondly, you seemed unsettled and concerned. Also, maybe it will help someone else...so here goes. You were right, I have folliculitis. I had an active infection on my face when my dermatologist did some piercing, undermining, and laser to stimulate collagen. The infection spread, my face blew up, and I went on keflex 1000/mg day. The day before going to my new dermatologist, the derm who did the procedure on me told me to use bleaching cream on my face to help remove scaring.
In most individuals there are outbreaks of folliculitis from time to time. Folliculitis is infection and inflammation of the hair follicles. The condition may be superficial (i.e., on the surface of the skin) or deep within the follicles.The most common cause of folliculitis is infection by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. Folliculitis symptoms can appear independent of infection. Exposure of the skin to certain chemicals, especially oils and tars, can trigger an outbreak.
I noticed some small pimples (3-4)that looked like mini boils on my penis shaft which popped and were watery, can I use bactroban as it is feeling a bit irritable or should I get something else to apply on this area of my penis shaft ?
The red bumps are looking like they might be getting infected. I have a tube of 2% Bactroban (or Mupirocin is what it actually says) can I use this on that area to prevent further infection? How can I avoid this when shaving in the future?
Hello - I have written before about recurrent folliculitis. I was first colonized/picked it up at a lake in summer 2000. I have tried everthing. In the past two years I have been on a couple different antibiotics - Ceflex, Dixoclyinie, Minocin, Levaquin, and Eyrthromicin. Only the Ceflex and Dixocycline were actually prescribed for the skin infections, the other where due to other illnesses... I have also tried Bactroban Nasal for extend period of times and Bactricin.
I had a bad flu with a horrible rash over my stomache, inner arm and thighs about two years ago. my dermatologist diagnosed the rash as folliculitis... i still get outbreaks consistently, primarily on my chest, breasts and back and a persistently runny nose which my dermatologist said can be caused by staph infection.
My dermatoligist said it was a folliculitis and put me on minicin which helped 100% but then I became allergic to it. She tried Doxycyclene and it did nothing. Multiple antibiotics were tried. Some cleared it up for about 3-4 weeks and then it comes back. Some did not help at all. I have been on Bactrim DS 800-160 tab for a year. I take two per day for 7 days and it clears up for about 4 weeks and returns.
I am not familiar with "under the skin folliculitis", having neither seen nor heard of it. Besides, folliculitis doesn't itch. Moreover, the bacteria in folliculitis are staphylococci, which generally don't respond to doxyxycline. Some doctors treat atopic dermatitis with antibiotics, oral and topical, at least intermittently, thinking that bacteria play at least a secondary role. It's conceivable that that's why doxyxycline worked.
Hello, Hot tub folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicle with Pseudomonas bacteria and is most commonly seen in people who bathe in a contaminated spa, swimming pool, or hot tub. I would suggest that you apply calamine lotion and a simple antimicrobial cream like Bactroban or Neosporin on the rash and keep the area clean. For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl can be taken. If the symptoms persist then topical steroids and oral antibiotics may be needed.
The dermatologist said that I have folliculitis and then upon further examination said that she also saw some in my nose. She prescribed me bactroban and told me to swab that in my nose and also use it on my face instead of the ketoconazole cream. I looked in my nose when I got home and saw that I have some little white bumps inside. I don't know if that's from sinusitis and the discontinuation of the nasonex or is that a staph infection?
These were accompanied by an infrequent, mild itch. I then started using the Bactroban, thinking it was a mild folliculitis. The Bactorban eased the itching slightly, but had little other affect. I've now been to two general practitioners. The first concluded it was folliculitis without a particularly close examination. She prescribed Keflex, which I intentionally did not take. The next day, I went to another general practitioner, more experienced with men's health.
cleared up with antibiotics (z-pac)...4/5 days after last dose of z-pac diagnosed with folliculitis. two weeks ago, same thing happened as above question is, why am i getting folliculitis, afterwards? Is it the antibiotic? It should be known the first time it happened, they gave me erythromycin. I have not gone to my GP the second time around. just a little nervous what i read about folliculitis...like std's, diabetes...etc, ...
I went to a walkin and was told it was folliculitis due to the fact they were in the center of my chest and shingles usually forms a line on your dermatome. I have weird sensitivity in my neck and im fearing it is indeed shingles. The walkin gave me cephlexin for the folliculitis and valacyclovir incase it was shingles. And bactroban to rub on the rash. Been taking both for 4 days now and the rash is drying up and going away.
) Oral antibiotics are necessary, but to eradicate the staph usually requires washing with an antiseptic soeap like Phisohex and applying an antibiotic like Bactroban in the nostrils every night. These are available by prescription and need to be applied and used daily for several weeks. The hair regoriwth was not miraculous--staph infections aren't deep enough to desctroy follicles. I suggest consulting your dermatologist again about these matters.

Hello, I am a black male, 26 yrs old. I have had folliculitis on the back of my neck and scalp since 2002. It started when I played football and wearing helmets. I used to share helmets with other players and we really didnt keep the helmets clean. The folliculitis started on the back of my neck where the padding from the helmet touched. after high school the folliculitis continued on my neck but was mild and itchy.
I went to two different dermotologists and they both prescribed me amoxiclav and when that failed i was prescribe oxytetracline as well as hibiclens to shower with daily and bactroban ointment to put in my nasal cavity. Since then the boils have slowed down but when one goes another seems to crop up (around my perineal region), even with the treatment.
I made it to see a doctor (not a dermatologist) that day (8/16) and he did not think it was herpes. He was fairly confident of a folliculitis diagnoses and didn't even feel it necessary to test me (despite my very obvious worry). He gave me an antibiotic potion (I think a "Zpack") and bactroban ointment. I felt better but woke up on 8/18 with 4 more of the same thing at the base of my penis but on the scrotum.
After going into a hot tub one year ago, i still have recurring folliculitis. It bothers me the most across my pubis, which is where the folliculitis first started. But i also have it on my chest, neck, back, at times under my arms, stomach, and head. I have been to several doctors, had 3 separate biopsies, and still i am having problems with this. I have exhausted a lot of money trying to rid myself of this problem. I have used Brovoxyl washes, Borrow's soaks, vinegar soaks.
Hi, This could be sweat dermatitis, folliculitis, allergic reaction. In most individuals there are outbreaks of folliculitis from time to time.

Occasionally I'll see what look like tiny whiteheads, but vanish after a few hours leaving flaking skin. I've applied Bactroban ointment which seems to hasten healing, tea tree oil, which does apparently nothing, and antifungal cream which just burned a lot. Neosporin actually may have made the infection worse, as the first time I had a lesion I applied Neosporin to the area, only to have it spread within a few days.
Hello, From the symptoms it can be folliculitis or boils. Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus (staph). Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics and do not pop the pimples.

I had been diagnosed with everything from Folliculitis to Keratosis Polaris. Tried creams, hibiclens, clyndamicin, bactroban in nose, etc -- even 2 rounds of Cephalexin. It keeps coming back. So here I sit at 10 months -- still freaking out. My question is - can folliculitus (stated online as a "subtle" way early HIV can present as the immune system is slowly eroded -- i friggin hate how they word things like this) be a sign that HIV is fooling the tests and I still have it?
I finally went to a walk in doctor and was diagnosed with folliculitis.. I was prescribed an antibiotic twice daily for ten days and apply bactroban cream 2-3 times daily. I only have about 6 antibiotic pills left (3 days worth) and not much cream left either. However, the only relief I have had is the itching. I do not really have itching anymore and when I do it is minor and the cream really helps.
where you can see clearly the hair in the middle of these little bumps... so i guess is folliculitis... so i started reading.. and i guess i am havind signs of inmmunosuppression so i took the HIV test which came negative.. so my quuestions now are.. having recurrent, non improving facial molluscum and folliculitis is possible in healthy people ? if not, being HIV discarded where else should i look to find answers ? how should i treat it ? thanks for your time and help... .
