2nd ASCT - Day 8 - Folliculitis - May 26 2012

I continue to have folliculitis on various parts of my body including the crown of my scalp, anterior chest wall, beneath both breasts, and on my left leg. We are treating the areas with topical Clindamycin every 12 hours. Here are the lesions on my chest wall.

I walked 15 minutes with Jani and managed okay at a faster pace than usual - achieved because Jani pushed the IV POLE with heavy pumps and I just walked alongside.

  1. if this is indeed foliculitis..then sunlight is the only cure for foliculitis, it has several components such as bacteria, yeast, fungus, etc. Strong sunlight, almost until the point that one burns, for about ten or twenty days is the only cure I know of, good luck, god bless you
