I have anemia, when I'm on ferritin supplements the lumps and sores ease and the pain is reduced. Get your iron levels checked at drs. Take care. Decafe vamp!
I have finally found the cure for my scalp folliculitus. It has been 15 years since I first started showing symptoms of this terrible problem. I have been using antibiotics (Ceftin & Clindamycin) which would only give me temporary relief. I finally stumbled onto a cause of chronic scalp folliculitus. It was Low Iron Anemia. I checked the symptoms of Low-Iron Anemia and about 4 other symptoms affected me.
I began using Iron supplements after I finished an antibiotic treatment of (oral)ceftin and (topical)Clindamycin in Clobestol. I wanted my scalp clear when I started the Iron supplements. I am happy to report for the first time in 15 years I am free of this problem. Please check your Iron levels you may be anemic and not even kno like myself. I thank God for finding this out. I only hope that someone reading this doesn't have to wait 15 years like me.
