Summer and Sunny Vacations Mean Pityrosporum Folliculitis
Get Treatment to Prevent Acne Scars
Pityrosporum folliculitis is a type of acne that gets worse in hot weather where you sweat. That same hot weather often involves sun exposure – the perfect storm for acne scars and marks called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
In summer, or when you are going on a sunny, hot weather vacation, be prepared. You need products that:
- Discourage the proliferation of the Pityrosporum yeast that causes this hot weather type of acne;
- Keratolytics to unclog pores because the yeast loves to cause pimples in plugged pores;
- Benzoyl peroxide to reduce the P. acnes germ that works together with Pityrosporum yeast to really rev up this type of acne; and
- Broad spectrum sun protection capable of blocking UV rays that lead to hyperpigmented acne scars.
That sunscreen needs to be trustworthy and not feel gross in hot climates when your skin tends to sweat.
I’ve done the work for you and created this kit based on what’s worked for my patients. Learn more as I explain how and why in my latest video below.
My Pityrosporum folliculitis is essential if you have that odd type of acne that both itches and hurts, has bright red pustules and tiny flesh-colored bumps studding your skin and that represent clogged pores.
Pityrosporum type of yeast acne is more prone on your forehead, along your hair and jaw line, your "T-zone" and on your chest, neck and back. My kit gives you control over this skin problem and helps prevent acne scars and marks.
