How do I prevent other forms of folliculitis?
Folliculitis infections largely involve bacteria, germs and yeast entering the hair follicles. You can prevent and lessen the impact of folliculitis by:
- Keeping the skin clean.
- Taking care while shaving.
- Checking the chemical disinfectant levels of hot tubs and heated pools before using them.
- Washing off and removing your swimsuit when you get out of a hot tub.
- Wearing breathable clothing to keep sweat from getting trapped between the clothing and skin.
