  • Blocked Hair Follicle – Everything You Need To KnowHair follicles are small pit-like structures present within the skin. They are responsible for the growth of all the hair on our bodies. When these hair follicles become blocked, it leads to an inflammatory condition of the skin known as blocked hair follicles. This condition is characterized by the blockage of hair follicles by sweat, dirt, and other substances, resulting in painful breakouts, boils, or pimples.The medical term for this condition is hydradenitis superlative, although it is commonly referred to as acne inversa. Blocked hair follicles are most commonly found in areas where the skin brushes against itself and sweat is produced, such as the breasts, armpits, groin, and buttocks.Initially, blocked hair follicles appear as pimple-like bumps under the skin. Over time, they can become deeper and more pronounced, resembling boils or cysts. In severe cases, the blockage can lead to the eruption of blood or pus, which may have accumulated within the follicles. These blocked hair follicles can also create tunnels under the skin, causing further discomfort. As the condition heals, thick scars may form, making movement uncomfortable in areas like the underarms or crotch.Contrary to popular belief, blocked hair follicles are not caused by poor hygiene and are not contagious. The exact triggers for this condition are still unknown. However, it is believed that sweat trapped inside the follicles plays a major role in their blockage. Additionally, keratin, a naturally occurring substance in hair, nails, and skin, can also contribute to the clogging of hair follicles.In this video, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for blocked hair follicles. We will also explore preventive measures and home remedies that can help alleviate the discomfort associated with this condition. Stay tuned to learn more about blocked hair follicles and how to effectively manage them.

  • Hair follicles may also get clogged by keratin that occurs naturally in hair, nails, and skin.
  • The clogged hair follicle then gets filled with bacteria that breeds, grows, expands, and ruptures.
  • A painful lump or pimple-like structure then forms at the spot that is filled with pus.
  • The pus then creates pressure and bursts the follicle.
  • Bacteria that are trapped inside spread and makes more blocked follicles.
