Hi Please use a shampoo containing zinc pyrithrone for regular use. Avoid using oil as this can worsen folliculitis. The folliculitis causes microinflammation which increases hair loss. Also this may lead to early onset male pattern hair loss. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products
