Dr Grant Discusses Folliculitis After Waxing
A reader has asked Dr Grant for advice, after he recently had his back waxed for the first time and is experiencing a bumpy red rash 6 weeks later.
Dr Grant believes this is an attack of folliculitis which is common after waxing when the hair follicle may suffer minor damage. Folliculitis is inflammation around hair follicles and often looks like small red bumps. The most common symptoms are itch and potentially pain.
Mild cases of folliculitis may self-resolve over the course of a few weeks, or else may need prescription anti- fungal medication.
