Folliculitis occurs when a hair follicle becomes inflamed. This can be a hair or set of hair follicles on the scalp, or anywhere else on the body. A person can suffer from folliculitis for a number of reasons. Shaving, insect bites, and carbuncles are all potential causes of folliculitis. There is a way to treat folliculitis at home with colloidal silver. First thing in the morning, pour the colloidal silver over the inflamed hair follicles. Make sure you get the tissue surrounding the inflamed follicles. Massage the colloidal silver into the skin for a few seconds. Wait 20 minutes, then rinse out the colloidal silver. Repeat again at night. Continue this cycle until you have completely healed.
