Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. i wanted to talk about these tiny, annoying, pesky little bumps on your forehead. You have tried salicylic acid. You have benzoyl peroxide. You have tried almost every single acne product on the market and they do not seem to work. What is going on? Pityrosporum Folliculitis or Malassezia folliculitis is caused by proliferation of a yeast within the hair follicles. What? So, basically it is a yeast. On the surface of the skin, it looks like it is acne except it isnt. One.
Distinguishable difference between acne and this yeast is the itchiness it causes. if the bumps youre experiencing are accompanied by an occasional itch, chances are you may have this yeast present. However, ironically, acne may be present, too; due to the fact that skin oiliness is one of the factors that can lead to this condition, and also, as you know, acne. More on that later. Surprisingly, malassezia or pityrosporum can actually be found on the skin of most adults; the thing is an overproliferation of this.

One more important point to make. While the title of this tutorial is How To Get Rid of Forehead Bumps, this condition can actually be present on the upper back, the chest, the shoulders, and the neck.

Even a systemic illness that can cause a weakening in your immune system or taking certain broad spectrum antibiotics and medications can also be factors. How can you tell if you have Pityrosporum.
Folliculitis? a al diagnosis can be determined by either visually observing the area or microscopically having a skin biopsy done. Sounds intense, I know. The good news is treatment is entirely way more straightforward. If you dont have the time or, lets face it, the money to go see a , determining whether or not you have acne or a yeast present can be as simple as applying a topical treatment to treat yeast, and seeing if it works. Nizoral AD Shampoo is a commonly used product used.
To treat this type of yeast. its active ingredient is ketoconazole. ketoconazole is an antidandruff, antifungal agent. Basically, it treats dandruff, it kills yeast and kills fungus. Apply a thin layer of this product over the affected areas twice a day morning and night for ten days. It is recommended that you leave it on the skin for ten to fifteen minutes before washing off. If you notice a significant improvement after the ten day application, more than likely an overgrowth of this yeast was present and the cause of the bumps you.
Saw on your forehead. if you notice mild improvement, both acne and an overgrowth of this yeast may have been present and may still be present. After a ten day treatment of this product, try treating the remainder of the bumps you have with acne remedies and acne solutions to see if you notice a difference.
