What Causes Folliculitis or “Razor Burn?”

 

Most of the time, the likely culprit is staph. Staph is a common bacteria that is all over your body. When staph enters through an open wound, is when it primarily causes issues. Some of the most common factors to cause folliculitis include:

  • •Blockage of the pores, sometimes caused by skin products
  • •A Fungus
  • •Ingrown Hairs
  • •Some Bacteria You May Find in a Hot tub

It is very important that you correctly identify folliculitis in order to correctly pursue treatment.

  • Wear looser jeans and regularly wash your tight-fitting clothes
  • Wash affected areas well with warm soapy water and keep them clean

If you need to shave, avoid using irritating lotions and moisturizes after shaving.

  • -Some creams and moisturizers can cause more harm than good and create inflammation in the hair follicule.
  • -Use fresh and clean razors 

Ultimately, the best and most effective solution is Laser Hair Removal.
