Patient : Hi. i have folliculitis(been to the doctor and tested). its on my scalp, its causing not only pain and itch but also severe hair loss. no doctor have given me any help or treatment. its been on my scalp for 3 years now, nothing have ever made it go away. except when i visit our winter cabin. its weirdly consistent, every time i go there i get better, even if its just one or two days. i dont understand why! i get fresh air at home. i eat the same, and i dont have more stress there than home. do you have any idea what causes this? could it be something with high altitude and production of red bloodcells? i dont know anything about this, but obviously something can be done, please help!
