I have been reading about
a condition of the scalp. Most have UC. I do not. But, I would like some feedback on this condition called foliculitis. After 2 biopsies, it is confirmed foliculitis, a bacteria of the hair folicle. The dermatologist has had me try antibiotics,so many different shampoos, lotions, gels, ointments and bleach baths 3 times a week. At present, I have to go in every few days and get steroid injections into EACH sore place. The injections seem to work, but then others will come up just almost overnight. The derm wants to put me on Prednisone, but I refuse to take it after blowing up like a blowfish the last time it was given to me. I am wondering if anyone has tried Proactiv on the scalp? The bumps are red, very painful and itchy. I know they say NOT to scratch them, but it's hard not to. AND, yes, my hair is getting much thinner since they have gotten so bad. PLEASE.......let me know if you have the same problems.
