Folliculitis decalvans is an inflammation of the hair follicle(roots) that leads to bogginess or induration of involved parts of the scalp. Most patients present with grooves and ridges along with pustules, erosions, crusts, ulcers, and scale.
The condition isn’t life-threatening, but it can be itchy, sore, and embarrassing. Severe infections can cause permanent hair loss and scarring. Staphylococcus aureus (staph)bacteria considered the most important cause of this so-called incurable disease.
Association of face acne observed in most patients. This disease has a higher affinity for persons with curly hairs
To my understanding and experience after seeing many patients, psychological stress is the most crucial cause. Bad life situations, suppressed anger, grief, the loss has been noticed in most cases.
The course of antibiotics with topical applications of antibiotics are the most commonly prescribed regime by the most dermatologist. Topical solutions, although initially seem capable, scarring is the result in most cases.
Homeopathy offers a long-lasting and permanent solution for this disease provided appropriately addressed with the classical approach.
Here is the story of a young lady from France suffering from Folliculitis decalvans. She was suffering since 2015, and due to recurrent infections and boils on the scalp, she has lost her hair.
She got treated by a dermatologist by many courses of oral antibiotics as well as topical applications. None had given her a long-lasting relief, and she was losing her hair constantly. Her very first question at the chat with Dr.Ravi was, ” You think that it is possible to regrow my hair?.
Dr. Ravi told her that the primary aim must be to make your scalp healthy, and if the hair roots are alive, then, hair growth is also possible. Being a young age makes her depressed, and loss of confidence was palpable. We talked to her about a detailed treatment procedure in the CURABILITY CONSULTATION, and she sent her hair via courier. Assistant Doctor Pragati Singh has done her deep case taking session. After the selection of remedy by Dr.Ravi, the patient’s hair was inserted in a medicated vial on 27 February 2020.
On 9th April she reported with the following
