Folliculitis / Follicultis Barbae/ Shavers Rash (Follic/Shavers rash)
Folliculitis and Folliculitis Barbae
A skin condition associated with shaving and hair removal. Usually found on the face, bikini lines and bottoms.
What is it?
These are two common skin conditions associated with shaving and hair removal. Men are likely to see this condition on their faces ("shavers rash") where pimples can appear as little red bumps and when infected, white heads. They can be itchy, painful and unsightly.
How it is caused?
Folliculitis is caused by a bacterial infection of hair follicles. It is also caused by viruses, fungi and inflammation from ingrown hairs. Scratching the skin with dirty fingernails, sharing towels or razors certainly contributes to it's arrival on your skin. People who partake in sweaty workouts, sit for long periods on time or wear pants that hold sweat will see these pimples on their bottoms.
