CLn® for Skin Prone to Folliculitis
Folliculitis –This is also known as "razor burn", "razor bump", "ingrown hair". A common skin condition where hair follicles (the tiny openings in the skin that enclose hair) are damaged and so are at greater risk of inflammation and infection. These openings can become plugged or irritated by sweat, oils, and makeup. Any location of the body which contains hair can be affected by folliculitis. Affected areas can look like rashes and pimples. More common areas include the face or scalp, especially in areas where there is repeated irritation from shaving. The thighs and groin can be affected by clothing repeatedly rubbing the area. There is also pityrosporum folliculitis, known as “back acne”.

Folliculitis is an infection and inflammation in the hair follicles—the tiny openings in the skin that enclose hair. You can have folliculitis on any part of your body that has hair. Even the nearly invisible hair on your face or back. It is most common on the face and scalp and areas rubbed by clothing, such as the thighs and groin. Folliculitis is also referred to as ingrown hairs and razor burn or bumps.
Shaving or wearing clothes that rub the skin can irritate hair follicles, which can lead to folliculitis. Follicles also can become blocked or irritated by sweat, oils, or makeup. When bacteria, yeast, or fungus is present with injured follicles, they are more likely to become infected, resulting in folliculitis.
Hidradenitis is a somewhat uncommon skin condition that features small, often painful lumps below the skin. The lumps typically occur in areas where skin rubs against skin, including underarms, beneath breasts, between buttocks and the groin. Many Hidradenitis patients benefit from using a cleanser, such as CLn BodyWash, that is specifically designed for skin prone to infection.
