I have Pityrosporum Folliculitis, kindly suggest

Hello, I have Pityrosporum Folliculitis . I have yeast overgrowth that gets down into the hair follicles and multiplies setting up an itchy, acne like erruption. They usually disappear quickly but leave marks. This has occurred mainly on my lower legs, knees, inner thighs and arms. Although recently my scalp was affected ( no longer after using H&S shampoo ) and now I am noticing these eruptions on my shoulders and neck and a few on the sides of my face. I know that I need to start an anti-yeast treatment for this. It s also worth stating that a little over a year ago I had MRSA that went away with antibiotics. My question is, Is my Folliculitis associated with me having had MRSA ? If so, have you heard of a product called phenomenal ? Is this product safe and would it help with my folliculitis ? Thank you for your time. JL

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The widespread folliculitis that you are having definitely needs systemic antibiotics and anti fungals to control them. Since you have a history of MRSA infection, there is every chance of getting infected again. It is good that the shampoo is providing some relief but that alone is not sufficient . You need to get the required antibiotics prescribed from your dermatologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal

Dear
Yes Treatment of MRSA can predispose to this fungal infection and this is by the means that antibiotics suppress the bacterias in skin which fights against this Fungus so when you were taking treatment for this MRSA. it might had suppress these bacterias. Second thing you asked about some phenomenal that I don't know. If you have any further queries you can contact me on www.spandanhomeocure.com
