In brief: Folliculit decalvans

No permanent cure is known for this, but there is a regimen of therapy with Rifampin 300 mg twice daily and Clindamycin 300 mg twice daily.
This new treatment can control the condition, and tests have indicated that after 3 to 5 month courses of treatment, many patients have seen limited to no evidence of recurrence. See a good dermatologist. Best wishes.
