Steroid folliculitis emedicine

Your condition may get very painful, bothersome and socially embarassing. It might be a true chronic recurrent bacterial infection of the hair follicles (folliculitis) or possibly an inflammatory reaction to ingrown hairs (especially if you had shaved this area at one time) and this is called a pseudofolliculitis. Recurrent cysts may occur without a folliculitis and some rupture underneath the skin and cause tunnels that come out the surface or develop another cyst that erupts and these sinus tracts, are difficult to cure without surgical removal. Hidradenitis Suppurativa is thought to be a chronic condition of the apocrine sweat glands. It is possible that your doctors may not be able to give you a definitive diagnosis. If standard therapy does not provide improvement, then you might consider laser hair removal. This has been very successful for those individuals who suffer with pseudofolliculitis barbae (of the beard).

If your dog's folliculitis is only on one or two areas of his body, your veterinarian will recommend topical therapy. You'll need to keep your dog's hair clipped away from the pustules during the entire treatment time so the medicine can make contact with the infected areas. Treatments include gels or ointments applied daily to twice-daily bathing for extensive infections. Topical treatments include antiseptics such as chlorhexidine and benzoil peroxide or antimicrobials such as bacitracin and fusidic acid. Your vet may also prescribe an antibiotic for your dog to take orally to speed healing.
