Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. I wantedto talk about these tiny, annoying, pesky little bumps on your forehead. You have triedsalicylic acid. You have benzoyl peroxide. You have tried almost every single acne producton 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 withinthe hair follicles. What? So, basically it is a yeast. On the surface of the skin, itlooks like it is acne except it isn’t. One distinguishable difference between acne andthis yeast is the itchiness it causes. If the bumps you’re experiencing are accompaniedby 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 thatcan 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 yeast is usually what causes this acnelikebreakout to occur, and like any yeast or fungus an overproliferation occurs only when theconditions are ripe. Then things go crazy! One more important point to make. While thetitle of this tutorial is How To Get Rid of Forehead Bumps, this condition can actually be present onthe upper back, the chest, the shoulders,
and the neck. It can really be found in quitea few different places. But I have found when we are talking about acne and when we aretalking about skin care, a lot of people have mentioned this tiny bumplike eruption onthe forehead. How did you get Pityrosporum Folliculitis?Or how did you get Malassezia Folliculitis? Going back to what I said earlier, it canoccur from oily skin. Other factors include obesity, stress, fatigue, or pregnancy. Evena systemic illness that can cause a weakening in your immune system or taking certain broadspectrum antibiotics and medications can also be factors.How can you tell if you have Pityrosporum
Folliculitis? A al diagnosis can bedetermined by either visually observing the area or microscopically having a skin biopsydone. Sounds intense, I know. The good news is treatment is entirely waymore straightforward. If you don’t have the time or, let’s face it, the money togo see a , determining whether or not you have acne or a yeast present can be assimple as applying a topical treatment to treat yeast, and seeing if it works. NizoralAD Shampoo is a commonly used product used to treat this type of yeast. Its active ingredientis 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 areastwice a day â€“ morning and night â€“ for ten days. It is recommended that you leaveit on the skin for ten to fifteen minutes before washing off. If you notice a significantimprovement after the ten day application, more than likely an overgrowth of this yeastwas 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 youhave with acne remedies and acne solutions to see if you notice a difference. Lastly,if you did not notice any improvement at all, more
than likely an overgrowth of this yeast isnot present. It could simply be acne that is causing the bumps on your forehead.
