Re occuring Scalp Folliculitis

Posted , 2 users are following.

It has been 3 times I have recovered from scalp folliculitis by different medications and all...And after all these years, I came to know the root cause of my scalp folliculitis which is excessive sweating.. I usually sweat when I play basketball or working out in a gym.. I have joined gym 2 times and left.. After excessive sweating,it again re occur.. I always shower (head and shoulder areas only) most of the time after working out or after finishing playing...What could be the solution for not letting it come back?Should I avoid working out at all?

    I would suggest swimming for exercise. Sweating can cause or exacerbate folliculitis, because it can feed fungus and bacteria. Mother Dirt sells a product you might be interested in though I have not used it yet.
