Folliculitis and pseudo folliculitis of the beard: what to do?

Follicullite et pseudo folliculite de la barbe : que faire ?

Gentlemen, do you notice pimples and blemishes after every shave? Nubiance helps you identify their cause and treat them!

What causes the appearance of pseudo-folliculitis?

Inflammation of the beard

Men who have black, dark or mixed skin have more frizzy and harder hair than Caucasian skin. If this is your case, you may have noticed that certain imperfections and pimples are created after each shave, on a continuous basis: this is called beard folliculitis . When you shave, inflammatory papules are created and are often accompanied by pustules. This all leads to an accumulation of bacteria that will form a swelling, even a small ball under the skin. It's not very pleasant to touch or look at! Result: you have visible or invisible pimples under the beard, pimples that bother you and prevent optimized regrowth. These imperfections, over time, can leave scars and marks that will result in brown spots.

Bacterial folliculitis

Inflammation of the hair follicle is particularly troublesome if you are used to shaving frequently. Indeed, beard folliculitis then becomes persistent and will continue to create inflammation. In the event of contributing factors (which is often the case), such as friction, tingling, perspiration or even the sun , folliculitis will be resistant and recurrent. So you enter a vicious circle: once the pimples are gone, you need to shave again and boom, they come back. But because every problem has its solution, Nubiance has concocted a beauty ritual for you to adopt to fight against beard folliculitis !

Folliculitis, only for men?

Although folliculitis is more common in men, it can also affect women. A hair follicle infection depends on the nature of your hair and body hair. For dark skin with frizzy hair, the appearance of pimples and ingrown hairs is more common, which increases the likelihood of having pseudofolliculitis in the beard or other area (particularly the side region of the neck). For women, Nubiance often finds issues around the lips of the face, the areas typically prone to shaving or laser hair removal. Once installed, they are generally recurrent and resistant (except thanks to Nubiance products and solutions) . Thus, any areas where you have hair can give folliculitis.

Is folliculitis contagious?

Beard folliculitis can be contagious due to the presence of Staphylococcus aureus on the skin. It is a neighborhood contagiousness, which means that the infection can spread to other hair follicles in the patient. Hairs such as the scalp can therefore be affected. As with any infectious focus, each person with pseudo-folliculitis problems must therefore take hygiene precautions, especially in the presence of children, pregnant women or the elderly. The forms of folliculitis are numerous and affect a large part of the population. Treatment of an inflammatory papule should therefore be done as early as possible, with topical application day and night to treat each beard hair lesion.

How to prevent beard folliculitis?

Less frequent shaving

For starters, frequent shaving is one of the main causes of beard folliculitis. The simplest solution also consists in taking care of your skin by opting for a more advanced hygiene of your shaving and depilation instruments. Be sure to clean your accessories thoroughly and disinfect them after each use. In the institute or at the barber, take the time to see if the tools are changed between each patient to avoid inflammation of the beard and infection. So change your razor blades frequently to get rid of bacteria and prevent their proliferation!

Do not touch a pimple or cyst

When a pimple appears, avoid at all costs touching our skin with clean hands as with dirty hands. The more you touch your pimples, the more they will become infected and noticeable. Leave each pilosebaceous orifice alone to give it time to treat the infection. If you touch them, you will have difficulty healing them and you increase the risk of complications. Which would then leave marks on your skin, including the famous brown spots ! Even if beard sycosis is not very aesthetic, you must give it time to fight the infection with suitable care products, such as those from Nubiance.
