Brief Answer: Add anti inflammatory medications please Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thanks for writing in to us. Sorry to hear about your folliculitis, a condition associated with an infection of the hair follicle. It can take about a week or two to heal and that may happen sooner if you take a complete course of antibiotics. It is essential to know the antibiotics you are taking, its dosage and duration for which you have taken. You may need to add an anti inflammatory medication like paracetamol or diclofenac in combination with serratiopeptidase (an enzyme preparation that enhances healing). Do write back with an update. Wishing you good health. Regards, Dr.Vivek
