Does anyone suffer from Folliculitis? (by suffer, i mean have had to deal with more than once)
Apparently people with diabetes and other people with "compromised immune systems" are more likely to get them than anyone else.
I just wonder, as since I was about..14, I've dealt with them on a semi-regular basis(well..every few spring seasons) and I'm wondering if it's really common for diabetics(like my family doc has said). I got a HUGE outbreak when I got my first tattoo at 18, on my back..which is weird cuz I made sure I cleaned my back extra good during that period and there's also a history of them on my dad's side..according to my mom, he used to get them all the time..but he's not a T1 or T2. But there's a history of T2 on both sides(his mom was dx about 4years before I was and my mom's dad was dx withing a few years of when I was dx with T1) so I wonder if that that is just boosting my chances.
It's nothing gross really, once I notice two red dots or so, since I know what it is and could become, I'm at the doc's getting the antibiotic cream and that usually fixes it.
but like I said, just curious to see if it's just me!
