Inflammation, which affects hair bulbs and passes in two forms( acute, chronic), is known in the medical community as sycosis.This disease often affects the dermis in the presence of neuroendocrine disorders in the patient, because under their influence the sensitivity of the follicles changes markedly.More often than not, experts observe a lesion of the dermis that occurs on the mustache, beard.

Initially, the disease is similar to superficial folliculitis.In the course of this disease, relapses are often observed.It flows very sharply in the beginning.

Features of the disease

This pathology often affects the dermis of men, because it is more susceptible to injuries in the stronger sex( shaving, abrasions).Women are less worried about the disease.

Areas with sycosis are located on some areas of the body:

  • mustache;
  • beard;
  • upper lip;
  • septum inside the nose, inner surfaces of the nose.

Classification of sycosis

Dermatologists identified such d

iseases( sycosis):

  • Ordinary .This species is included in the "pyoderma" group.
  • Parasitic .It is represented by a subspecies of trichophytosis, and more specifically, its infiltrative-suppurative form.This form of sycosis is acute, relapses are absent.It can be cured independently, because during its course the immunity is included in the struggle.

In a separate form, dermatologists distinguish lupoid sycosis.It is represented by a very rare form of staphylococcal folliculitis.It is characterized by a very sluggish, wavy current.On the dermis formed a few pustules, areas with atrophy, stable baldness.
