Long-term Remedy for Folliculitis
Ted-- I am at my last straw.... 38 in NYC and I can't find a cure!!!!! I have folliculitis on my scalp. On Monday or Tuesday I will get the results of my biopsy to determine the type of folliculitis. Possibly decalvans? I have been on minocyn and solodyn for 3+ years. 3 months ago I decided to quit the antibiotics as I was afraid of long term affects. Upon quitting the antibiotics my scalp broke out worse than ever. I began with all types of specialty shampoos including t/gel, salicylic acid, zinc and etc. No change. I tried pouring ACV per many posts I read online. No change. I visited a Chinese herbalists and 10 days of herbs later, no change. I went for acupuncture, no change. I am drinking honeysuckles boiled in tea water, no change. Tea tree oil, no change. I went Thursday for the biopsy and reluctantly began today taking morgidox (doxycycline hyclate) and using tazorac and clindamyacin topically. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm sure the anti b's will work in next 10 days but I don't know what to do long term..... I need help. Can you spell out any sure cure? What to do and for how long.
