is most likely responsible
Thanks for posting your query,
I am pleased to be able to assist you.
might be fungal as the infections of skin fungal can can cause this
can use antifungal tab fluconazole
once a wk for 6 wk
apply antifungal ointment over hair for long time
Actually, folliculitis is infection of the hair follicles usually be bacteria such as staph or fungal agents which often comes after shave or when hair falls off. Dryness or irritation or itchiness or redness
are often symptoms that can occur when you have this infection. This could also be due to fungi infection especially when dryness is the main symptom.
So yes, you could apply fluconazole cream or oitment to it (i.e if actually fungi is the cause). I often treat this by simply prescribing some steroid
creams such as betamethasone
0.05% cream to most of my patients. After examining if I suspect it is bacterial infection, I just provide topical antibiotics.
Maybe you could get a doctor to have a look if you are opportune, if not, you can apply the antifungal oitment on it.
Hope this helps and wish you the best.
