Hello, I have been told that my immunity had gone down and this caused the severity in my condition. I'm currently undergoing homeopathic treatment from past 1 and half years. I'm not taking any other medicine no diabetes or thyroid disorders or anything else. I'm a male of age 28 years.

It would be prudent to shift to Allopathy as the folliculitis can be corrected easily with drugs and local applications.It would help contacting your PCP as evidently the problem is not fully managed by homeopathy.Use of antibiotics to settle the inflammation will probably be effective within 2 weeks ,later oral drugs and local application can help control any pending inflammation and lowered immunity.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
