I have had severe folliculitis on my butt area for over 5 years. I have tried everything, including multiple trips to the dermatologist. For several years I thought I had acne, but after lots of research I have determined it is folliculitis. I've taken oral anitbiotics, used apple cide vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, tumeric - to no avail. But finally, I've found something that is working - hibiclens. Its an antibacterial wash that can be found at the drug store. Doctors use it before surgery. You should only use it once a week, and you need to make sure to mositurize. My dermatologist reccommended CeraVe moisturizer daily, to protect the skin. Also, she prescribed an antibacterial foam called Clindamyclin which is working. I have stopped using my scrubber in the shower, as it is a bacterial breeding ground and only use my hands to wash with no. Also, she said I should never re-use a towel. So far this process has worked incredibly well and I'm completely clear.
I also have had pretty severe foliculitus on my butt for around 4 years and recently tried Hibiclens to my benefit. The stuff really does help, however, it still doesnt clear it completely up for me. I use it twice a day in the shower. Nonetheless, Im still trying to find other remedies to completely clear it. Let me know if you find anything else as well!

I also thought I had acne and tried so many treatments, peroxide, Salylic acid, tea tree oil, retinoids, etc. Hibiclens hasn't cleared it up 100%, but the difference is amazing and almost overnight.
