Treatment Of Razor Bump (folliculitis)?
Hello, what do you use ointment for razor bump?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Razor bump, or which in medical terms is called folliculitis, is an inflammatory condition in the hair follicle that can be caused by hair growth errors, or inflammation due to the surface of the skin being damaged when shaving.
This condition actually does not require special treatment, and left alone can heal by itself in a few days. In addition, you can also compress cold, or provide moisturizer in the area concerned. You can also apply tea tree oil or aloe vera on that part, wait for about 15-20 minutes, then rinse with cold water.
If this condition does not improve after 3 days, or it gets worse with the lumps getting bigger and pus comes out, check with your GP to get further tests, which usually involve giving antibiotics. Meanwhile, there is no need to worry, and keep your body clean overall. So, hopefully answering your question.
