I was wondering if anyone knows of any effective methods that got rid of their folliculitis? Any help at all would be very much appreciated! :)

Alexandra, I have never experienced this condition, but if I ever did, I would reach for the Manuka honey as medication of choice.'

I would also take steps to clean out my body of accumulated debris, but of course if one has a compromised immune system this may not completely eradicate the condition permanenly.

I now use the Manuka Honey to rub on my scalp to heal any lesions that occasionally appear there, maybe they are pre-cancerous thin spot, or what, I cannot say, but I treat them with the honey (or sometimes just any strong honey) and watch them fade away.

Good luck with it.


PS: The Book The Honey Revolution explains how honey works in very scientific detail.

See a competent MD for proper diagnosis, antibiotics and other advice. Don't rely on anyone who stands to profit from quack [if otherwise harmless] nostrums.

He pushes that honey baloney on everyone.

Trouble is I've seen one doctor and two dermatologists and all they prescribe are creams and prednisone pills that work... Until I run out of them. The health care industry is ridiculous, in my opinion. Profit before patients well being and outcome. I'm merely asking for methods that have been proven to help those with folliculitis.

I've only had it once, in my armpits. My doctor told me to stop shaving and stop applying anti-perspirant or deodorant. I was mortified, because I have hyperhidrosis and was embarrassed at the thought of walking around even sweatier than usual.

But I followed doctor's orders, and it went away. And no, I did not stink. Have you tried Neosporin on the affected sites? It's recommended on LiveStrong. Also, no hot tubs or long baths.

Finally, if friction is aggravating it, you could try Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel, 1.5-Ounce Tube. It contains no fragrance. It's a silicone-based gel that offers good protection against irritation, and not just chafing.

I was put on Minocycline for it and it worked great!

Hm that chafing relief powder sounds interesting. I'll definitely look into that, thank you!

Good rebuttal, Alex. When OldAmazonian speaks of "Competent" MDs he is measuring them by their ability to 'Play the Game" of medicine, not their ability to lead an individual towards better health and complete healing.

Merry Christmas!

No, he means a doctor who practices medicine competently, who first does no harm, suggests self-care when possible, prescribes treatment if necessary, including alternative medicine if he deems it safe for the patient, and refers the patient to a specialist if the disease is one he cannot treat. And if he does a referral, he'll send the patient to a board-certified specialist; one whose credentials have passed the scrutiny of his peers.

He was telling the OP that her doctors are not up to snuff in terms of treating her condition, not pandering to the evils of scientific medicine.

I keep remembering the loss of thousands of innocent folk who died from mismanagement of their medical issues.

Add to that the numbers who die from Iatrogenic diseases......................

When I remember all those who suffered endlessly from nosecomial infections, yet their doctors would not recommend (and less likely were they to apply) the Manuka Honey to the wounds, ................. when I talk to my friend in California and all he talks about are his operations, and now they are doing them over again because the last surgeon messed up, and the knee is next, and yes, he has plenty of money, so they give him what he wants, which is sympathy, of course, and line their pockets with his feathers, then come on here to tell us how righteous they are, and what good Christians they are.....................

John can help himself, no bother, but John can't do much for his fellow men who are caught up in the illusion of health stemming from a Medical Culture gone wrong.

Thanks for the cue, Mick. I just needed to get that said one more time.
