Treat Folliculitis Chest
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.

Folliculitis: Folliculitis can be a difficult and chronic condition. You may need to take oral antibiotics for quite a while...Maybe months ....Maybe longer.

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 Because relapse almost always occurs when treatment is withdrawn, topical ketoconazole is indefinitely continued after successful initial treatment with oral medication.See 1 more doctor answer

Could be: It could be "hot-tub folliculitis" which typically goes away on its own if a person stays out of the hot tub until the rash is gone. Rashes are hard to describe and to visualize in words, so a doctor would have to examine the rash to tell what it really could be.

Folliculitis.: Despite the fact that folliculitis is technically a bacterial infection of the follicles, we can often treat acute folliculitis with a simple warm soak to the area (warm water on a washcloth and applied for 15 minutes at a time, 2 to 3 times a day). If this does not help, one could try antibacterial creams, available over-the-counter.See 1 more doctor answer
