It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what causes hair loss when there are numerous things that could be the reason. Some of the most well-known causes are diet, age, hormonal changes, and stress. One potential cause that is less talked about is inflammation of the hair follicles.
What is Folliculitis?
Folliculitis is inflammation or infection that can affect one or more of your hair follicles and can cause temporary or permanent hair loss. It is usually caused by staph bacteria or fungi and can be contracted from someone who has an infection. Most normal, healthy people have staph bacteria all over their bodies that do not cause infections or symptoms. However, sometimes staph bacteria can cause an infection that can potentially become severe.
How to Treat it
If a doctor diagnoses you with folliculitis, there are ways to treat it. Some treatments for inflammation that doctors may recommend include steroids, antifungals, or immunotherapy. For treating hair loss, your doctor may recommend minoxidil. Keranique Hair Regrowth Treatment contains 2% minoxidil which is used to help women regrow a beautiful, thick head of hair.
