Acne in Disguise

Posted in Adult Acne by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
It is easy to confuse the bumps of a condition called pityrosporum folliculitis with the bumps of acne.  Both conditions are commonly found on the face, chest and back, they both can present as pinkish bumps and pustules, and they both are undesirable as summer approaches.  Dr. Scheiger explains that, "the bumps of pityrosporum folliculitis appear 'monomorphic', which means that they all look uniform.  These bumps will not respond to traditional acne treatments.  They often appear suddenly and can be quite frustrating to treat if not diagnosed correctly." Acne specialists at the Clear Clinic in NYC routinely identify this condition and can formulate a treatment plan for pityrosporum folliculitis along with your acne regimen.  These monomorphic bumps form as a result of the yeast that regularly resides on your skin getting trapped in the hair follicle.  Anti-fungal medications are the mainstay of treatment to get rid of these frustrating bumps for good.
