Pityrosporum Folliculitis Natural Treatment
I have read that pityrosporum folliculitis is a chronic disease. Does this mean that treatments will be for a lifetime also?
No.: Actually it's quite easy to treat. Use oral ketoconazole pill will stop it.
been diagnosed: pityrosporum folliculitis, all over my back, being treated with oral fluconazole forweeks, can I shift to oral ketaconazole to cure me?
Add topical med: Try topical medications make sure your blood liver levels are within normal limits before trying any new medications
Ketoconazole: Topical, or do like physicians -- a 400 mg tablet before you exercise to the point of being drenched in your sweat, and let the sweat cover you for an hour, repeat monthly. There's a bunch of other things that work as well.
10mth rash. 2derms, 10 diff meds that didn't help. I think Pityrosporum Folliculitis, fits all symptoms. Why will no one give me an antifungal?
Have you tried: Asking 1 of the Dermatologists for an antifungal?
Why is pityrosporum folliculitis very stubborn to treat? . I've been using Nizoral (ketoconazole) for months now and I still get pustules on my chest and back.
Go see your doctor: The first question is whether the pustules are still due to pitysorum. A re-evaluation by you doctor would be helpful.
Can pityrosporum folliculitis be treated with a low dose of Accutane? I have tried antifungal pills. It made a big difference but still not cured.
Pityrosporum folliculitis: Treatment of pityrosporum folliculitis, must deal with both the yeast overgrowth and any predisposing factors, otherwise the condition will recur. Unfortunately we often either do not know, or cannot correct, all the factors that make one susceptible so the condition has a tendency to return once the anti-yeast treatment is stopped. Isotretinoin is not indicated for tx of this condition.
Can Pityrosporum Folliculitis slightly mimic scabies? Where on body would it appear? Would antifungal soap clear it? How would one be tested for PF?
Not really: It is frequently misdiagnosed as acne. If you're using acne meds appropriately and things are not getting any better think maybe you have PF. Should be treated with anti fungal meds. Scabies most commonly appears at pressure points of clothes on skin- belt, wrists, and the webs of the fingers.
I've been told I have pityrosporum folliculitis- slightly rough pink papules non-itchy on chest/back. 1. What are the best oral and topical meds? 2. Is jojoba oil ok? 3. How do I reduce the redness?
Ketoconazole: A course of oral ketoconazole and topical ketoconazole shampoo is currently the recommended treatment. Oral medication should be discontinued when the lesions resolve. Because relapse almost always occurs when treatment is withdrawn, topical ketoconazole is indefinitely continued after successful initial treatment with oral medication.See 1 more doctor answer
I was putting a cortisone cream on my face to treat some redness, and now I think I have developed pityrosporum folliculitis. What are some options for treating it until I can get into the doctor?
If a rash is Pityrosporum Folliculitis would Selsun selenium sulfide shampoo and an antifungal spray/cream help clear it up? What would work faster?
Try different stuff: Lots of options. Find out which works. I know of people sleeping painted blue with dandruff shampoo, and others who get fine control taking a ketoconazole 400 mg tablet before working up a sweat in the gym, once a month. I'm glad you got the diagnosis made -- it gets missed a lot. Lots of stuff works. You get to choose. Best wshes.
Does 150mg daily Fluconazole for three weeks seem like a high dosage for tinea versicolor and malassezia folliculitis?
Skin and detox: Lots of remedies for folliculitis. The question I have is what is causing it? Are you detoxing? Having a reaction to soaps, shampoos, foods? Start with your bathroom cabinet and check your products against the website www. Ewg. Org. There you will find a cosmetics database of over 69, 000 products. Keep anything you place on your skin/scalp in the 0-2 range and see if your folliculitis doesn't clear.
Topical & Systemic: Pseudomonas folliculitis is classically associated with hot tube use and improper chlorination of the water. Treatment can be topical using Acetic Acid (vinegar) soaks or other agents. Systemic treatment is often centered around oral antibiotics. Sometimes people will carry the bacteria in the nose and eradication there will cure the problem. See a dermatologist to help with management.
Yes: This sounds like the tinea versicolor variant with little pustules around the hair bases. These can become bacterially superinfected. Focus on the fungal infection with a good anti-fungal -- a single big ketoconazole tablet followed by working up an intense sweat in the fitness center might work a minor miracle for you.
Depends...: ...On what kind of folliculitis you have, and on what part of the body it is occurring. A dermatologist can tailor a specific treatment for your folliculitis.
Tincture of time: Hot tub folliculitis shows up 8-48 hours after exposure and will resolve on its own over the course of a week. There is no specific treatment unless 1.Associated with systemic signs of illness. 2. Lesions are extensive or progressive or 3. There is large abcess formation. If these occur see your doc. Chlorinate your hot tub and pool properly!
