Anybody suffer folliculites of the scalp? Oh it looks horrible? I went to the dermatologist and he gave me some cortisone cream to stop the itch and anti biotics that are tough on the stomach.

Anybody have any other suggestions to clear this up?

It's always something isn't it.. I have never had it on scalp but did have a nasty case on leg one time. The dr. put me on antibiotics , but I hate to take them. They upset my stomach awful. Anyhow, I remember a lot of people with scalp folliculitis swore by Selsun Blue shampoo or Head and shoulders classic clean (has to tbat one, classic clean) or tea tree shampoo or something with neem in it. Good luck to you!!!
