What is Hair follicle infection Ayurvedic treatment


Folliculitis or hair follicle infection is a condition wherein hair follicles become inflamed. It's usually caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. Initially it may appear as small red bumps or white-headed pimples around hair follicles which may spread and turn into non-healing, crusty sores. Permanent hair loss and scarring may result due to severe infection.1

According to Ayurveda, skin gets its nutrition from rasa dhatu (blood plasma) and good skin is a reflection of good health of a person. When all the doshas are balanced in a person, it reflects in good shining hair and skin of that person. Imbalances of dosha causes various diseases. Poor nutrition, hot and humid climate, poor hygiene and chronic disease may increase the risk of infection like hair follicle infection.2
