Razor bumps, also known as Pseudofolliculitis barbae, is a common occurrence on mens faces, however it can also appear on other parts of the body where the hair is plucked or shaved.
After the hair has been removed and then later begins to grow back, it can turn back towards the skin and grows back into the follicule. This causes itchy red pimple-like bumps on the surface of the skin. It is most common in people with curly hair, although anybody can experience this irritating skin condition.
Folliculitis Infection or Inflammation - Causes
Folliculitis is the infection of hair follicles that most commonly occurs on the skin and scalp especially in areas where hair removal has taken place. It is an itchy, often painful acne like pimple that develop on the surface of the skin. The hair follicle gets infected and inflamed by friction from clothing, blockage of the follicle and shaving causing little pus filled pustules on the skin and if not treated can result in serious skin infections.
The signs and symptoms of folliculitis vary depending on the type of infection but the most common signal of a superficial infection is the appearance of small pimples that surround one or more hair follicles. To distinguish these pimple-like bumps from actual pimples you can often see the hair shaft at the center of the inflammation. They usually contain pus and may be crusted over by the surrounding area that is inflamed and red. The infection is usually tender and often painful.
Folliculitis can affect both woman and men and can develop on any part of the body. Barbers itch, as it is also called, is typically found on bearded men especially when shaving as the skin is aggravated resulting in a staph infection.
Pseudofolliculitis barbae is a common occurrence for people with curly hair. When curly beards and other body hair is cut too short, it curves and begins to grow back into the hair follicle causing inflammation and later infection.
Friction from tight clothing can also cause folliculitis as it prohibits the normal growth of the hair causing it to change direction and grown towards the skin surface instead of away form the follicles.
Iron deficiency anaemia is sometimes also associated with chronic cases.
Hot tub folliculitis is caused by a bacteria found in new hot tubs and can also be found in overcrowded dirty living areas.
