There are many causes of folliculitis - with bacterial folliculitis being one of the more common.
Treatment needs to address the cause of the folliculitis. Bacterial scalp folliculitis is best treated with anti-bacterial agents.
Clobetasol will help make the scalp feel better short term and trick one into believing it is a good remedy. It is not a good option for most types of folliculitis
If you have folliculitis, be sure to see your physician for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
