In today’s video, you will see 7 homemade medicines to treat folliculitis naturally!
Do you have small, white bumps on your arms? Do you know what it means? It might be folliculitis!
Folliculitis happens in any part of the body, even in the scalp. The hair follicles get inflamed and look red and swollen, which leads many people to confuse them with pimples.
Folliculitis causes itchiness, pain or sensitivity, burning sensation, and rough, dry, or flaking skin.
It is usually caused by ingrown hairs but can also happen because of fungal or bacterial infections, which causes redness on the skin and small bumps filled with pus, similar to acne, that itch and cause a burning sensation.
Folliculitis is more common on the buttocks, crotch, legs, arms, beard, and scalp. People who wear tight clothes, shave, or wear makeup are more prone to have folliculitis.
To help you, we will give you 7 natural tips to treat folliculitis at home:
1. Aloe vera
Refreshing, aloe vera gel can quickly heal your skin and alleviate the itchiness, redness, and swelling. It also helps treat some of the bacterial infections that cause folliculitis.
