Suggest Treatment For Pseudofolliculitis Barbae
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
Pseudofolliculitis barbae occurs when:
* extrafollicular penetration occurs when a curly hair reenters the skin, or
* transfollicular penetration occurs when the sharp tip of a growing hair pierces the follicle wall.
Your XXXXXXX XXXXXXX descent explains the curl of your hair and therefore it might not be a good idea for you to shave. Possible solutions for you could be:
* Chemical depilatories- Barium sulfide powder depilatories or Calcium thioglycolate preparations can be used.
* Topical medications- Topically applied tretinoin (Retin-A) may alleviate hyperkeratosis. Mild topical corticosteroid creams reduce inflammation of papular lesions.
Let me know if I could help further.
