Do i have pityrosporum folliculitis acne?
i have been battling with this acne on my forehead for about a year now these sorts of little colorless bump and whiteheads.. I’m starting to think that is pityrosporum folliculitis.. but idk some of the descriptions of folliculitis i read about it seem like it could be but some don’t. But normal acne medication, face wash, pills, etc. haven’t helped to much..
Do you have the same bumps on your back, arms, or neck? These are where they normally appear if you have pityrosporum folliculitis. They rarely appear on the face.
Go to a doctor or dermatologist and ask if you can take a medicine called acutane that medicine really works but the side effect for it causes lower back pain but you will only have to take it for around 4 months and the back pain doesn't even bother me just can't slouch cause that's what triggers it
