Why EliteAyurveda

How are we able to Treat Folliculitis Completely?

Folliculitis is a skin condition in which hair follicles get inflamed, which can be caused due to bacterial infection or fungal infection. Initially, they may appear as small bumps, but later, develop as non-healing crusty sores. The initial bumps appear to be red or like white-headed pimples which grow around hair follicles. It induces itchiness, soreness, severe infections, and can also cause permanent scarring.

Skin derives its nutrients from rasa dhatu (blood plasma), according to Ayurveda, and excellent skin is a sign of a person's overall health. When all of a person's doshas are in harmony, it shows in their healthy, lustrous hair and skin. Dosha imbalances result in a variety of ailments. Infections such as hair follicle infection can be exacerbated by poor diet, a hot and humid atmosphere, poor hygiene, and chronic disease.

Local creams, antibiotics, and steroids solely cover the symptoms; they do not address the underlying source of the problem, which is why the problem recurs so frequently. Patients should follow a personalized Folliculitis treatment strategy that includes a healthy diet and specialized natural herbal medicine. The therapy also focuses on clearing the body of impurities with individualized herbal medications and home remedies.

Ayurvedic approach for folliculitis treatment serves to eradicate the root cause. It involves internal medications like shaman chikitsa, asthi majjavaha chikitsa, oaktavah strotas chikitsa, nidana parivarjana chikitsa; and detoxification via panchakarma treatments like shirodhara, basti, nasya, abhayangam, shiropichu, etc. This eliminates Ama from the body, stabilizes the vitiated doshas and helps in curing scars and folliculitis condition.

Root Cause Treatment

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."

Types of folliculitis

  1. Bacterial folliculitis: This type of folliculitis causes itchiness, white and pus filled bumps. This is caused when hair follicles are infected by bacteria like staphylococcus aureus (staph). These bacteria live on skin but can cause problems only when they enter skin via cuts or wounds.
  2. Hot tub folliculitis (pseudomonas folliculitis): This type of folliculitis causes red rash, round and itchy bumps after a day or two exposure to bacteria. Hot tub folliculitis is caused by pseudomonas bacteria found in hot tubs and heated pools in which pH levels are not regulated.
  3. Razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae): This type of folliculitis causes skin irritation due to in-growth of hairs. This is found in males who shave on sensitive areas like face and neck; and in women found in bikini areas after waxing which develops barber’s itch in the groin. This leaves behind black scars known as keloids.
  4. Pityrosporum folliculitis: This type of folliculitis produces chronic, red and itchy pustules on chest and back, also sometimes on neck, shoulders, upper arms and face. This can also be caused as a result of yeast infections.


  1. Spreading or recurrent infections
  2. Furunculosis (boils under the skin)
  3. Permanent scarring or dark spots on skin
  4. Permanent loss
  5. Destruction of hair follicles
