What Follicutilis
Feb 10, 2002

Dear Doctor,

I understand that there are several causes of follicutilis. Would the type caused by shaving be or look similar to the one common with HIV ?

Thanks for your time..

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Folliculitis tends to look like folliculitis regardless of what's causing it. Folliculitis barbae, the kind associated with beard hair follicles, looks like any other kind of folliculitis but is confined to the beard area. A skin doctor should be able to give you a clear diagnosis.

Only cmv?
