Eosinophilic folliculitis (also known as "Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis" and "Sterile eosinophilic pustulosis") is an itchy rash with an unknown cause that is most common among individuals with HIV, though it can occur in HIV-negative individuals where it is known by the eponym Ofuji disease. EF consists of itchy red bumps (papules) centered on hair follicles and typically found on the upper body, sparing the abdomen and legs. The name eosinophilic folliculitis refers to the predominant immune cells associated with the disease (eosinophils) and the involvement of the hair follicles. The cause of EF is unknown. A variety of microorganisms have been implicated, including the mite Demodex, the yeast Pityrosporum, and bacteria. An autoimmune process has also been investigated. Eosinophilic folliculitis may be suspected clinically when an individual with HIV exhibits the classic symptoms. The diagnosis can be supported by the finding of eosinophilia but a skin biopsy is necessary to establish ...
Sterile eosinophilic folliculitis, a clinical entity first described by Ofuji in 1970, is a rather rare skin disorder, in particular in the non-Asian population. We report the first case of eosinophilic folliculitis associated with toxocariasis in a Caucasian patient. Topical and systemic anti-inflammatory and antiphlogistic therapy along with systemic antihelminthic treatment resulted in complete remission of the skin lesions. In addition, there was a marked decrease of antibodies to Toxocara antigens in the patients serum following antihelminthic therapy. Given that (I) some cases of eosinophilic folliculitis have been reported which were associated with infestation with metazoan parasites; (2) infestations with the roundworm Toxocara canis are known to induce eosinophilic reactions in some tissues; and (3) therapy-induced remission of eosinophilic folliculitis was accompanied by a decrease of Toxocara-directed antibodies in the patients serum, we propose that there is an aetiopathogenic link

Author(s): Yeh, Jennifer E; Hartman, Rebecca I; Xu, Jia; Hoang, Mai; Yasuda, Mariko R | Abstract: Folliculitis decalvans is a rare scarring alopecia that presents with indurated, tender pustules and papules on the vertex and occipital scalp. Although systemic antibiotics with activity against Staphylococcus species provide some symptomatic improvement, folliculitis decalvans remains a significant management challenge and often exhibits a relapsing-and-remitting course. In this report, we posit the potential utility of medical grade honey as a safe and cost-effective adjuvant therapy in the treatment of folliculitis decalvans. We describe a patient with painful, boggy scalp pustules who achieved clearance of his scalp lesions with the addition of Manuka honey. To our knowledge, this report is the first to demonstrate the clinical use of honey in the management of folliculitis decalvans and may lend support to the role of Staphylococcus in the pathogenesis of this disease.

HOT TUB FOLLICULITIS Pseudomonas folliculitis, which may be acquired from communal hot tubs, is caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. Although they have increased the incidence of folliculitis, hot tubs are often overlooked as a cause. Jacuzzis, therapeutic whirlpools ("whirlpool folliculitis"), public swimming pools, and the use of loofah sponges may also be a source of Pseudomonas infection. Pseudomonas folliculitis has recently been found to occur under diving suits and after wax depilation. Lesions of hot tub folliculitis consist of intensely pruritic or tender follicular papules and/or pustules that are most often found on the trunk (the area covered by a bathing suit). They occur one to three days after bathing in a hot tub, whirlpool, or public swimming pool ...

Folliculitis is a medical term that refers to an inflammation of the hair follicles. Although armpit folliculitis is uncommon, it sometimes occurs because of the presence of hairs. There are two main types of this condition, especially on the arms, groin, and legs. Namely, superficial folliculitis (bacterial folliculitis, pseudomonas folliculitis, etc.) and deep folliculitis.. Armpit folliculitis could be attributed to bacterial or Pseudomonas folliculitis. While bacterial folliculitis occurs after staph infection of hair follicles, pseudomonas folliculitis is caused by exposure of skin to environments with these pseudomonas bacteria species. Such places include hot water tubs or heated water and chlorine water in swimming pools whose pH is not well regulated.. Common signs and symptoms include:. ...

Hot tub folliculitis (also known as Pseudomonas aeruginosa folliculitis) is a common type of folliculitis, a condition which causes inflammation of the hair follicle.[1]:272. This condition is caused by an infection of hair follicles due to the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The bacteria is commonly found in hot tubs, water slides, and such places. Children are more prone to this because they usually stay in the water longer than adults. Hot tub folliculitis appears on the skin in the form of a rash, roughly resembling chicken pox and then developing further to appear as a pimple. Hot tub follicultis can be extremely painful and/or itchy, and left alone without scratching will go away much more quickly. If the rash is aggravated, it can stay, worsen, and spread lasting for months. By that point it is much more difficult to treat. The dots usually go away after about 7 to 10 days, but the condition leaves a hyperpigmented lesion that goes away after a few months.. Legionella is another bacteria ...

The culprit behind razor bumps is often the act of shaving, which is usually responsible for the persistent inflammation, known as pseudofolliculitis barbae. A breakdown of the word reveals the following meanings: "pseudo" (false), "follicle" (hair), "itis" (inflammation), and "barbae" (of the beard) [1]. Sometimes, the condition is referred to as "PFB," but the most common terminology is "razor bumps." The most widespread and well known places that razor bumps strike is on the male face, but the condition also affects other parts of the body (such as the legs) where the plucking or shaving of hair takes place. In women, those who shave their genital regions may face pseudofolliculitis pubis (PFP, for short). The concern for razor bumps is also greater when hair is curly and skin is sensitive. The process of razor bumps begins after a shaving, when hair starts to grow back. The normal growth pattern of hair is to blossom straight out of the hair follicle, but in many cases, curly hair has a ...
Folliculitis decalvans is an inflammation of the hair follicle that leads to bogginess or induration of involved parts of the scalp along with pustules, erosions, crusts, ulcers, and scale. It begins at a central point and spreads outward, leaving scarring, sores, and, due to the inflammation, hair loss in its wake. No permanent cure has been found for this condition. But there is promise in a regimen of dual therapy with Rifampin 300 mg twice daily and Clindamycin 300 mg twice daily. This new treatment can be used to control the condition, and tests have indicated that after 3 to 5 months long uninterrupted courses of treatment, many patients have seen limited to no recurrence. There is no certainty about the cause of this disorder, but it is known that the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus has a central role. This bacterium can be detected in the lesions of most patients. It is unclear if a primarily sterile infection with secondary colonization by Staphylococcus aureus is present, or if this ...

Here is Ving Rhames, an African American actor with active roles in action adventures, such as the "Mission Impossible" franchise. His cheeks show a lot of activity too. What you call shaving bumps or razor bumps, doctors (with extra time on their hands) call pseudofolliculitis barbae or PFB, a name with more syllables than are usually uttered in a summer suspense flick. This very common problem is due to the close shaving of curly hairs. The short-cropped hairs delve back under skin, creating an inflammatory, pimple-like reaction. Occasionally, small scars occur. Management includes not shaving closely (promoting light beard growth), and use of Retin-A creams to promote open pores. For severe inflammation, antibiotics topically and by mouth are of great temporary benefit. And for longer lasting benefit, shooting at movie bad guys and spectacular chase scenes can also relieve tension ...

The fatty acid (FA) composition of Phyllidia varicosa and Phyllidiella pustulosa (notum and viscera) was investigated. Samples were collected from coastal water of Balok - Pahang - Malaysia. This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that nudibranchs species host symbiotic bacteria by using fatty acids as biological markers. A high level of fatty acids group specific to the bacteria were detected in the selected species that called odd- branched chain fatty acids. Among them, high levels of iso- anteiso-C15:0, C15:0, iso-C16:0, C17:0, iso-C17:0, iso C17:1(n-5), iso C18:0, 14-methyl-C18:0 and iso-C18:0) were found and their percentages in the notum are significantly different compared to viscera. The total odd- branched chain fatty acids were 29.64% in P. varicosa and 30.66% in P. pustulosa compared to another group of fatty acids such as saturated FA, monounsaturated FA and polyunsaturated FA. The present study deals with the identification of cyclopropane FA in the nudibranch tissue for ...
Hot tubs - especially ones in spas, hotels, and gyms - are perfect breeding grounds for germs. The water is not hot enough to kill bacteria, but is just the right temperature to make microbes grow even faster. Even though hot tubs are treated with chlorine, the heat causes the disinfectant to break down faster than it would in regular pools. The most common hot tub infection is pseudomonas folliculitis, which causes red, itchy bumps. A more dangerous side-effect of soaking in a dirty Jacuzzi is a form of pneumonia known as Legionnaires disease. This is what reportedly sickened more than 100 people at the Playboy Mansion back in 2011. less ...
Folliculitis is an inflammation of one or more hair follicles. It appears as a rash or white-headed pimples or pustules near a hair follicle. It can occur anywhere on the body, but typically affects hairy areas, such as the neck or groin. Follicles can be damaged from repeated friction (such as rubbing of too tight clothes) or a blockage of the hair follicle (for instance, from shaving). In most cases, follicles become infected with the Staphylococcus bacteria.. There are two types of folliculitis:. Superficial Folliculitis affects the upper area of the hair follicle and may cause red, inflamed skin, small clusters of red bumps, blisters that break open and crust over and/or itchiness and tenderness. When the infection occurs in mens beards, it is called Barbers Itch.. When it is caused by a fungal infection, it is known as Tinea Barbae (ringworm).. Deep Folliculitis affects the entire follicle from its deepest parts under the skin to the surface of the skin. This less-common form of ...

Acne keloidalis nuchae, first described by Kaposi in 1869 as dermatitis papillaris capillitii, was coined by Bazin in 1972.[1,2] This idiopathic inflammatory condition is most commonly seen in young African-American men after puberty, representing approximately 0.45 percent of all dermatoses affecting African Americans.[3] The male-to-female ratio is approximately 20:1, and only rarely have cases of AKN been reported in women.[4,5]. Pathogenesis. AKN is a misnomer since it differs pathogenically from acne vulgaris and true keloids do not form.[3] However, the exact etiology of AKN is unknown. Many have proposed an etiology similar to that of pseudofolliculitis barbae, implicating the action of hairs curving into the skin leading to a foreign body inflammatory reaction.[4,6] Patients with AKN often cut their hair very short and may closely shave the hair on the neck. A prospective, hospital-based, observational study found that the initiating event in 90 percent of AKN cases was trauma from a ...
